I had hoped to start reading some poetry this evening, but alas, poetry and headaches don't mix. I suppose I could try write some silly verse about the pain behind my eyes, but it would be exactly that...silly. And it would probably lead to even more pain behind my eyes. Tomorrow evening doesn't look a whole lot more promising as I have some stuff to do and people to see. However it turns out, it is bound to be better than tonight, for I hope to have no headache by then. Even writing this little bit has been a struggle, so I think I will hit the 'publish' button, and call it a night. Goodnight.

It seems that the time has arrived to restart this journal. I was hoping that a vacation would spur on the creative juices, but I fear that it has been too long since I wrote anything meaningful. Which means I have to get back into the habit of writing. Every day. If you recall, this was the main reason I started doing this last year...because writing begets writing. And so, I write. And along with writing, I will start reading poetry again. I have a couple books to go through, and then I may just load up my Kindle with poetry tomes and read. Reading begets writing. If these two methods (reading and writing) don't spark me, then I may need to ramp it up. But, I'm not there yet. No, I am just starting. Again.
