swirling

i want to know everything
i want to be everywhere
i want to fuck everyone in the world
i want to do something that matters

There are all these ideas swirling all the time- 1,000 things I want to
write
paint
create
say
do
change
imagine
fix 
begin

but there is no focus and they overwhelm me and the inspiration comes when I’m

working
driving
waiting in line
nursing
showering
trying to sleep
trying to pay attention to Something Important

and none of the brilliant dynamic things ever gets done ever.

  1. Ahhhh. Another midnight genius. Is it motherhood or what? In those few still moments, our creativity emerges and we are FIRED UP. Then, the nursing and the laundry and the phone calls resume. We await the next flash of brilliance…

    But hey, at least we have them!!!

    The dynamic things arent’ ‘not getting done,’ they are merely gestating for a time when they can come to fruition. Probably morphed into something slightly different, but brilliant nonetheless.

  2. I’m so, so with you on this one.
