Infusing the Un-crutched
Recently I happily celebrated another birthday.
This one was truly special since I was able to mark it on two feet.
My broken ankle is, for the most part, healed up and I am grateful to have it working again.
I have to admit suffering that break this year set me back far more than I ever imagined.
It not only paralyzed my daily routine of basically keeping active, it crippled my writing ability.
Sure, I might have channeled that difficult struggle through poetry here this past month in the Café (Crutched, Not Waterproof , Blazing Reality to name a few), but sadly, the injury didn’t provide much in the way of creative help when it came to the editing of my manuscript and chapter revisions.
So when I opened up birthday gifts from my family, I was thrilled to see they were thinking the same thing.
There is nothing like a new notebook for inspiration.
Chocolate helps boost the spirit and a helpful reminder of “creativity” in a bookmark wraps it all up nicely.
Needless to say, I am eager to shake things up, get back on track and get the damn editing done this spring.
Wish me luck.
