Today’s a gorgeous weather day. Cool with a light breeze. Bright and sunny aside from my spot in the shade of the tree above me. At this point in the afternoon the sun has already made good progress toward the horizon, but there is still enough light and warmth to sit outside comfortably.

I can feel the lightness of this day. What a blessing. I’ve found my center of gravity again after weeks of ambivalence. Before the ambivalence I was spiraling in manic and self-sabotaging thoughts so the numbness was welcome. But now it’s nice to feel something genuine. Yes, this is nice.

Afternoon Tea

I don’t have much more to share today. My poetic muse is still on holiday it seems. That’s ok, I’m sure it will be back. Until then…

Be well,



  1. Hi Monty! Glad you are doing better. Take care.

  5. I find when the muse as some call it is on a break, l don’t sweat it, there are plenty of other things to pen about 🙂

  6. Happy for you! I’ve always been (except for National Poetry Writing Month and Muri’s scavenger hunts) someone who writes only when inspired. I think it’s whatever works for the individual. 🙂

      Writing is part of my “self-care” so I like to do it daily if I can, but it doesn’t always need to see the light and be “publishable”.
