It’s been three weeks and while I understand it’s good to post consistently, I so needed this break.
No, I’ve not given up writing and I’m not going to any time soon. But I’m not going to lie, I’ve had a tough month, both in my personal life and my career. Some people find they are more creative under the pressure. Kudos to those people. I am not. So I decided to take a quick recess in hopes to clear my mind and focus on working a few things out.
But being the person I am… yeah I didn’t actually take any time to really relax (I like to say I’m ambitious, but something tells me there is probably some clinical term). Instead, however, I took the opportunity to come up with some new ideas that I can’t wait to share and I will do so, very soon.
One day I will stand upon the mountain, on its giant overreach, Stroking the clouds, While staring down at the heads of trees. And I will say to those who come after me;
"In rain and cold weather, I climbed. The view of the victorious sun gives worth to my calloused hands. Gather your strength. Join me when you can."
And I will be steadfast, And I will be brave. I will not forget my past, On that victorious day
On day I will stand on the white shores across the seas, Next to the boat that carried me. I will smile at the dimming stars while I sleep to the hum of the steady flow, And I will say to those who follow;
"In storms and great waves, I sailed. The beauty of this shoreline has compensated what was lost at sea. Make for the edge of your harbor. Come and find me."
For now I will keep on, For now I will be brave. Until I see that glorious dawn On that victorious day.
