Better days are coming

There are many ways to interpret the above statement: writing, projects, relationships, work, people. Apply as you see fit.

The same old, day-to-day rut is getting me down.

I miss my friends. Some more than others. (sorry not sorry)

I can’t write. I can’t think.

So today, maybe, instead of writing another draft post full of crappy words to add to the pile of other draft posts full of crappy words, I’m going to post this statement and focus on it.

And force teach myself to believe it.

  1. Take the dog for a walk, you’ll probably find someone to talk to.
    The routine leads to boredom, medicine for that is interacting with someone, people bring very varied topics of conversation, sometimes more interesting than any fiction.


  2. I believe that wholeheartedly, but then again, I’m like a real-life Chris Traeger (minus the resting heart rate of 23 beats per minute).

    I mean, Biden chose Kamala Harris as his running mate. That alone is cause for celebration!

    Stepping away from writing when you’re feeling this way is an excellent idea, though. Forcing the issue won’t get you anywhere. Today, maybe just focus on breathing in and breathing out.

      1. Look, you seem like a decent guy. Obvious political differences aside, a comment like this is demeaning and personifies so much that is wrong in the world. I really hope America can bridge this divide and work together to regain our once illustrious status in the world.


      2. I like your blog, Swinged Cat, and I am a decent guy. Educated, smart, and spent 20 years in the military (so my patriotism is beyond reproach). When my politics are attacked, which you did with your assumptive comment, I will make sure my voice is heard. Loudly. And that includes my opinion. You opened the door. Sorry.


  3. A tougher lesson is to focus on now. If better times are always in the future, the wait is exhausting. Gratitude now. A roof over your head, food on the table. Loved ones in your home. The future is, in part, what we make it. We are making it, now. Go outside in the cool of the morning (or evening.) Make something colorful to eat with fresh produce. Water the garden, while imagining what your current characters would do with this time. Put fresh flowers on the table. Play music…and dance.

    1. I had time this morning to enjoy a long walk as I haven’t been to the health club as car is in the garage. It was lovely. I passed the alligator pond and they weren’t out yet; I noticed the egrets getting food from nearby lawns, saw some interesting houses, waved hello to some people, and figured out the next plant for a pot I have: black eyed susans…Very good way to begin the day. I carried a big stick in case I met an alligator or a lose doberman and left my worries at home. The pug stayed home and i twirled the cane as the heavy rain had finished one hour or so before…and you never know what snakes might be about.

      1. This is lovely to read, except for the alligator and snake part. lol πŸ™‚

        I go for evening bike rides which has helped me both mentally and physically. I know the second part is true because my butt is sore. πŸ˜›
