Featured quote

All writers have periods when they stop writing, 
when they cannot write, 
and this is always painful and terrible
because writing is like breathing.

- Audre Lorde

  1. This remind me of a poem I wrote years ago:

    The Art of Breathing

    To find room for the new
    you have to let go of
    the old

    so to learn how to write
    I had to forget how
    to breathe

    and for a time I thought
    I had to write to keep
    breathing

    which makes such perfect sense
    but only if you’re a
    poet.
