Off the shelf: Re-reading destiny

Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why?


Reasons to re-read books,

lying on my shelf,

Neither mouldy nor dusty!

You give me a good reason why

And maybe I’ll take a peek,

And the reasons cannot be,

My reasons why

—repetitively me, repetitive you.

Keeping me busy,entangled, embroiled,

In a sordid little drama.

Then,  a salubrious environment,

In which to peruse them.

Then,my friend, we can both benefit,

From words of the wordy wise.

Writer’s Block Party: Read to Write

When was the last time you experienced writer’s block? What do you think brought it about — and how did you dig your way out of it?


If I don’t read, I can’t write.

It’s as simple as that.

It doesn’t have to be about what I intend to write.

The reading’s serendipitous.

The writing does not take a fall.

I read. Ergo, I write.

To write is to read—a lot.

How hard is that for you to understand?

How simple have I to be for you to get it?

What a party!
