Break It Down
I'm taking some time away from spewing my every thought and wondering (worrying) where and how it's going to land.
I'm taking a break from diving into the deep end of the pool and hoping I have enough air for the journey back.
I'm adjourning from the need to metaphysically holler out to fellow crashers n' survivors.
I know writing is good therapy. I know getting the soul gunk out is necessary.
But I need a sabbatical from this blog.
I need big canvases and lots of paint. Really big canvases.
What I really need is the company of friends, of which I have very few who are available, and even fewer who I feel I can really talk to, open up to. I need to get out and have coffee and conversation. Even though I feel I have nothing to say.
What I really really need is to quit feeling like I need to be so strong all-the-fucking-time. And I'm well aware that the only person who makes me feel that way is me.
So, I'm stepping away for a day, going on hiatus until Wednesday. I have work to do.
Sometime when a thing is broken, the best thing you can do is take a break.
