now normally, in a situation like this, i would stretch. or rub ice on my shins. maybe go get a pedicure while i drink approximately 3.7 gallons of water. but here. but this. is a whole new animal: brain conditioning by poem. yep. & to be frank, my brain is feeling a little like it just ate a family size bag of sea salt & vinegar chips.
all that to say though: this is a phenomenal project. it is getting my brain off the couch & into creative 5k mode. & perfect. i want to write & pull more & more pieces together for my manuscript. for a bigger project. for myself. for all kinds of good reasons.
so what next? hydrate or perish. hyrdate & polish. & more of the write, write, lyric, write, write.
to read my poems for the first 6 days, peek them here.
