I miss writing.
Before I created this "Blogger" alter-ego, I used to write.
With a pen.
On some paper.
Or in a journal.
My best work would typically, and rather inconveniently,
pour out of my brain while I was driving.
I would hastily scratch away on scraps of paper
and once I'd pulled safely over into some random parking lot,
I'd transfer my thought straight in a journal.
Regardless of the outside temperature, I would religiously open the sunroof and angle the car to allow for the maximum amount of sunshine to reach my face.
Only at that point would I begin to write.
Once the inspiration had been captured, I'd tuck the journal back into the car-door
compartment and be on my merry way.
Arriving early for an appointment,
I opened my car-door journal today and found it dusty and dirty and sad.
A neglected old friend.
The last entry was dated 3/17/2012.
As the sunroof slid open, I grabbed a pen...
Special thanks to Veronica Varlow for inspiring me today.
She has just a KICK ASS blog that I highly recommend.
