I’ve felt no inspiration to write the past few days. The loss of [Emmy] so abruptly, given how long we’ve been together, is bringing me down, and my mourning may be clouding my creative visions. Plus, I’m in love with no one currently. So the love muse is gone too. Hopefully, I’ll get an inspirational recharge at the next party in July.
In the meantime though, I’m journaling, to record and better understand the ebbs and flows of creative writing as they happen in my life. Eventually, these experiences will be documented in my blogs; but not just now.
I’m also reading a biography called: Francis Bacon: The Temper of a Man by Catherine Drinker Bowen. I enjoy reading philosophy and hearing about those who write it, because in their life experiences, as told by themselves and others, I believe I can expand my understanding of my own situation, and thus, feel better about it, even though I’m not moved at present to write about it. I’m confident though that this lacking desire to write will be short-lived, and that I’ll feel impassioned once more to blog, just as I was after meeting [Linda] last May. All that need be done, is to find someone else to fall in love with, and then, the reams of daily writing will once again flow abundantly. I am sure of it.
