Things haven't been that great here. They seem to be increasingly more pressing, stressing, stretching mostly in the mental and emotional sense. That's when need to the write the most. That's also when I feel the least like doing it. But I need to kick aside the apathy and listen to the little voice inside and allow myself to get things out on paper or screen. I can't hold it all in. I can't hold it all together by holding it all in. I have to let go.
