Write Every Day...


WRITE EVERY DAY, the Muse insists. Don't skip a day no matter how you're feeling, no matter how many wars your country is fighting, no matter how many tornadoes are heading your way. Crawl into your storm cellar and pick up a pen. If you can't think of anything to say, write the word God again and again. If you don't believe in God, write the word dog. Everyone believes in dogs.

"Sy Safransky's Notebook," The Sun, July 2011

I'm going to give this a try and see if I can follow my Muse. I want to write something every day, hopefully, it will be something I can post here so you all can hold me accountable. There may be days when I follow the instructions and just write *dog* and others when I write utter nonsense. Who knows where this will lead. Now, having made the above disclaimer I give you:

In just one short month I will be celebrating my 57th birthday. Yes, I am an Imbolc baby and I LOVE every aspect of what that entails. I was born on the second day of the second month of the Gregorian calendar. I am many of the facets of a child born on the 2nd...

Born on the 2nd you have a need for peace and harmony. You dislike confrontations and chances are, you know how to make compromises to keep the peace. You are a lover, not a fighter. You work well with others and are very supportive. You also are very sensitive and your feelings can be easily hurt. You are very perceptive about people if not downright psychic. You sense far more than you probably realize. You may be indecisive from time to time simply because you see both sides of the decision you are trying to make. You are good with details and you may tend to collect things.
