I spent several hours on the screen porch today tapping keys. My column for Sunday is due today and when I have a decent idea, the session is fairly painless. That was not the case today.
Everything I wrote seemed trite. I wrote, re-wrote, tossed and repeated a half dozen times, before I shut the laptop and went for a walk. Most time, a walk frees up my mind and gets the juices flowing. Again, that was not the case today.
When Jilda got home we headed to town for feed and seed. I also shopped a Columbus Day sale and scored a few dress shirts for this fall and winter.
Once home, I took a nice nap and took the laptop back to the porch with the attitude that I'd sit there till morning if I had to.
I started writing about the things I enjoy about October and it flowed. I won't win a Pulitzer, but I'm happy to call it complete.
We have a gig this weekend for an arts alliance south of here and we're excited. It's a chance to play for a new group of folks. We're cranked.
Humpday is behind us, and this week is downhill from here. Y'all hold on.
