    Rise and Fall

    I...am...completely empty. I can't write or create in sadness. I can not write out of pain. Even now, it's hard to make the words come out. Usually, the words flow once I find out a way to deal with issues, challenges, and obstacles. Now I am just...

    How Does That Happen?

    Something happens in your life, you get the urge to create again, you spend time and energy and it makes you happy. Then it slows down, and eventually you realise it's just... gone. No more inspiration, everything you create sounds "blah..."... Why does a muse just... leave?

    Love art or any other museum. Love learning new things weather local history or world history. It's the best peaceful relaxing time killer I have besides walks along Ohio river.
