Creative Blocks

A   L   O   H   A  !
Bud, Budding, Blossoming,
Scattering. . .

" Henceforth 
I ask not 
good fortune. 
I myself am 
good fortune. "

Walt Whitman

" Hello Lamp post, 
watcha knowing?
I come to watch
your flowers growing
Looking for fun
and feeling Groovy "

Paul Simon

" If you love 
the labour of your trade, 
apart from any 
question of success 
or fame, 
the gods have called you. "

Robert Louis Stevenson


Like everyone else
I used to complain
of writer's block.

Now I understand:
creative work
takes the time
it needs,

IF you let it.

We can't push the river
or go against the flow.

[ calling it 'work ethic' ]

and truly birth the 
Real Thing
struggling to be
 born. *

I understand that
important creative work
does not occur
at the keyboard,
easel, or view finder.

is all the time
You Need.

                       Fondly, Cloudia

Join us in Comments,
even if you just look around.
You'll like the people 
who you meet there!

* "Words of truth ARE paradoxical"
Lao Tzu is right.

The art of writing
is the art of applying
your bottom
to the seat
in front of the Keyboard.

If you would BE a writer:
Write. Your life
(if you are lucky) 
will become a
writer's life.

" If you wish to be a writer; write! "

Even though your photo is dandy, I still don't like the jillion dandelions in my yard. Must get a recipe for dandelion wine! DrumMajor
