Still feeling icky from this cold that’s got me.  Nonetheless, I was up early and eager to transfer more from my archives to their new home here.  This morning, I worked on poetry.  I posted quite a few, but I’ve got lots left to transfer.  I may wait on those, though, and shift my energy tomorrow to including prose and things I’ve written about the art of writing itself.  Eventually, I’ll have it all transferred over and can begin writing and posting current material again.  For now, I’m finding a great sense of healing in reviewing and posting my older pieces.

In reading some of the poetry on love, I had mixed emotions, really.  Of course, there’s a sadness that takes over when a relationship fails, but I’m learning that it’s important that I don’t discard or discount the blessings inspired by those relationships while they were in tact.  Each time I wrote of love, I wrote from my heart – innocent expressions of true emotions.  Each person I wrote poetry for remains in my heart… and it’s true, I will love the essence of those people for eternity… not the “in love” kind of Romeo and Juliet sad ending kind of love, but an appreciation for the roads I’ve travelled and the company with whom I’ve walked those paths. At the same time, I realize I’m currently creatively blocked, most specifically in the areas of love, romance, and writing out those genuine emotions.  I think I’m searching for a new way to express myself, without repeating what I’ve already expressed in the past… a new way to love, even.

At any rate, I’ve updated the About Page to include the new Poetically Yours category.  Tomorrow morning, if time allows, I’ll begin transferring some of the prose, or “freestyle” writing from my past.  I’ve got some pieces in there that really thump me over the head and I’m looking forward to re-reading the notes I’ve left for myself.

Quiet time for this morning is over… it’s time to go to work.

Life is good.
