Sometimes that is a really good message. Good for you listening.

I'm trying but it's hard. How are you doing, by the way? I hope everything's going smoothly with the writing. I know it can be hard sometimes.

Proceed with caution!

You're telling me. Although I've always proceeded with caution. Maybe now's the time to say to hell with safety and take some risks.

Slow: Children at play.

Sometimes the perspective to take is just to go with whatever your feeling. My mother-in-law wrote a poem in which she wonder why we feel the need to be human doings, rather than human beings.

Once in a while it's nice to let the human experience happen. It's ok to worry or be dejected or filled with love for everything.

I expect you to remind me of this when I am feeling low. Ha!

Flood, so there's no pressure, right?

Some risks are definitely worth taking.

It's really about facing down fear - if there's something you really really want to do, but you are paralyzed with fear and anxiety due to the unknowns and the chance of failure, then THAT is a risk worth taking.

Rand, that's great advice. It's exactly what I want to do. I'm scared but the thrill is much stronger than the fear.

This is the pause before something great happens. Stay with it. Remember everything because it goes by so quickly. Even the bad stuff can be recycled into poetry.

January, yes, that's it exactly. I'm trying to remember every detail as it happens but I feel like I'm stumbling through it drunk. But it's a nice kind of drunk.
