I was advised that instead of retiring, I ought to take a break. Maybe that is the better option. I have taken breaks before, but perhaps a long one is in order to get the best refreshment? I just don’t know yet how long is reasonable.
I will be away from this blog for about a week, just to kind of tend to other things, spend some time w/my wife & son, and just generally allow my mind some R&R to prevent burn-out.
I will be taking the rest of the week off, doesn’t mean I won’t be writing poetry at all, just that I won’t be posting any poems for the rest of the week. I have never liked pressure (even self imposed) to write, creativity (in it’s truest sense) can’t be forced.
I will keep a notepad or something nearby to jot ideas as they come, and share the results later.
I think the break from posting will be helpful to my process.
Today has been excellent here, thank you all, but I don’t have much more poetry finished @ the moment. As soon as I do, I will be sure to let you all know. Bear w/me & I promise it will be worthwhile, cheers.
Since I have had a very productive writing day, I will be taking another short break. To those brand new to following/reading this blog, welcome. To those who have been with me a little while here,grazie (thanks) again, truly.
I will return after I’ve recharged a bit. In the meantime, if you’ve missed anything, feel free to catch up, and enjoy!
I have been sharing here pretty regularly lately, so I’ve decided to take a couple days off just to avoid burn out. I will be keeping a notebook for fresh material as it comes to mind, and will post it here when I return.
Thanks again to all those who continue coming to and supporting this blog. I’m taking the short break as much for you all as for me, in the sense that if I’m burned out I can’t bring you all my best.
