TAKE ME AWAY

I’m in a strange place these days…
And while some might say…
Don’t be so hard on yourself…
No one would expect you to write under these circumstances…
It’s OK to take some time off…
My need to write right now is so strong…
I cannot not write.
I guess it’s cathartic…
Because writing even this blog post…
Makes me feel better.
Below are a few witticisms…
That popped into my head recently.
I know they’re weird...
But weird is how I’ve been feeling lately...
To say the least.

Life…
Has a way…
Of taking…
Focus off of you…
By making you pay attention…
To someone else’s …
Dying.

Question…
If you fart in a nursing home…
Will anyone notice?
Or care?

Blogging…
Is like masturbating…
While it doesn’t produce offspring (published novel)
It does produce instant gratification (comments on blog)


And while I may be weird...
I'm not a wallower...
I like to listen this Natasha Beddingfield's song 
That always takes me to a better place..


Always, Em-Musing

I’ve never compared blogging with masturbating before. But, I see what you mean.

Makes me feel a bit self-conscious now, blogging with so many people watching ;)
