Been busy, tired and suffering from a block, a writer’s block. All of my normal tricks to get out of my funk weren’t working. I just couldn’t figure out why. Changing scenery didn’t work, writing at different times of the day didn’t work, looking back at older poems for encouragement didn’t work, so I went to music.
I opened up my Pandora and clicked on one of my favorite artists, Walk Off The Earth. I scrolled down, found “All Songs”, and with fingers crossed I clicked on the first song, Red Hands. From there each of their songs played on. Closing my eyes and listening to the lyrics and beats, my mind cleared. Words started flowing like a thawed stream after a long winter. Images passed through, leaping off the paper at me. Finally the “dam” block crumbled!
