I hope it's not the bug that has been going around everywhere.

Just over a flu/bug thing a week or so ago. Good to feel good again.

May be looking at another surgery but hope not.

Sobriety gets better everyday.

But the first idea was not to shape the clouds
In imitation. The clouds preceded us.

There was a muddy centre before we breathed.
There was a myth before the myth began,
Venerable and articulate and complete.

From this the poem springs: that we live in a place
That is not our own and, much more, not ourselves
And hard it is in spite of blazoned days.

Many creative people use alcohol and drugs in order to engage in creativity. This is silly. All creative, the present is the soul, and the soul is real when sober

Hi Flam!

I was just thinking this morning, how very little interest I have anymore in writing anything that isn't what I think and feel as a person.

I wonder if that's why the work of some authors falls off when they get sober? People as you say make the mistake of thinking the drinking 'makes' them creative. Maybe it just helps them get really good at telling lies, and when the drink is gone, they find that lying isn't what it used to be, and their truth is hard to tell.
