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.
