In Briefs

I sit before the computer in my underwear. Boxers actually. Never briefs. A man needs to live free I say! Free!

But that's not why we're here. A few people have asked if I was ok, because sometimes I don't post here for several weeks. The truth is I'm not ok. But that's usually what prompts me to write in the first place. Lately however, I've had a bit of writer's block. My brain struggles to find words, to find the thread of a feeling or emotion. So many things swirling in my head.

And so many things to do. Some days it feels like I don't get anything done, writing or otherwise. Don't even get around to putting on clothes. A small luxury for those of us on disability. Fatigue is always a factor too. Writing often feels like a wrestling match, and I struggle to find the energy.

Not to worry however. I'm keeping plenty busy. More tomfoolery, ballyhoo, and news of a very special project to come shortly.

Hey Scott! I also wondered how you were doing when days passed between writings, but I told myself it's ok...being with his family...or even in solitude...is more important. I also have "swirlings" in my head...a really weird mixture of joyful observations, especially of my kids,....then my ribcage will shudder with a twitch or my hand will cramp and I'll think "Damn it!", then one of my rascals will run by and give me a hug and life starts over... Scott, I think these "swirlings" actually make us more alive than many people these days. It's great to hear that you are still acting goofy and have a special project....I just managed to get a portrait I painted of my daughter accepted in a gallery...a really good feeling...but now I want to find a way to help others outside my family...and hopefully the swirls will slow down a little so I can focus better on the good things...remember...MIND OVER MATTER!! Take care...Vanessa
