design in the daylight, poetry at night.
Writing was my first passion and has become a constant journey. I write very sporadically, prolific at times, especially with my poetry. But I have also taken long breaks from writing, at one point 18 months. Priorities change as do our passions, forging new directions for us. Writing is always something I come back to, a load star. I turn to it like a good friend, in times of sorrow and joy.
I am comforted that many of my heroes, creatives beyond my ability, were also renowned for not finishing things. Perfecting, tweaking, unsatisfied, bored. I see most projects through these days, but not from a lack of diversions. I love to learn, crave to learn is more accurate. From history, to religion, to geography, to science, anything; I often get lost in a subject new or old and have the need to devour it like a scavenger feeding on a long sought meal.
I hold tight to a few indulgences, but many have fallen away.
