What to Write About?
One question: What to write about? Stumps the greatest thinkers of the world. Yet we know deep ideas are constantly skittering within our heads. On the surface of the sea roaring in our minds are insights about the world that some choose to hide while others throw up into the air kaleidoscope of lights firework display: interpret and take as you wish. Most are scared of those roaring waves And sometimes you are "most." The spindrift isn't soft or warm today. It's cold and feels like crystallized ice carving into your shivering skin The sky isn't sunny today. Drizzle from dark days drowns out your daring and makes you stop on the shore because What to write about? You know what to write about -- it's all there, in the sea of deep ideas constantly skittering within your head. But today the waves tower the ground trembles when they crash onto the shore. Today lightning flashes in front of your hopeful outstretched hands. Today your arms feel too heavy fingers feel too vulnerable so you tuck them to your sides. Today... What to write about? ... you know what to write about. But you don't want to. It's okay to stay on the shore once in awhile.
