The Muse Awakes…for Love
June 26, 2010 § 13 Comments
Lately, the Goddess of Procrastination had moved in – she’s quite demanding and insists on filling my days with…doing nothing. Not just no writing, but no everything: no laundry, no unpacking from my last two trips, no mowing the grass that is falling over from its own height, and no ceremony for the wedding that is now two weeks away. For the past three weekends, I made a mental list: laundry, unpacking, mowing, ceremony…and accomplished none. What I did manage to do is to start running again in the Austin heat, which I’m proud of, and uh…nothing else.
But today, yes, today, she moved out! I ran and biked (the biking is with the dogs), I mowed until the weed eater died, suitcases are back in the spare room, and my closet and drawers are fragrant with fresh scents. But the best if all is the writing. (I’m the wedding officiant and promised to write the ceremony.) What seemed impossible these last weeks flowed today, and the initial response from my nephew and soon-to-be niecette is a good one.
So, my Muse likes romance and running, and dislikes the Goddess of Procrastination. What about yours?
