Setting Little Goals.
Here’s to the Future.
Don’t worry, I am not about to go off about aliens or anything again, yet at least. This is a toast to the future because this is a post about the past, my past; it is a milestone for me, my hundredth post on ivymariethepoet.com
For days I thought about what I should write so I could make it special, going back and forth, erasing and starting over again, thinking some more and then just ignoring the problem. As I was showering just now, it hit me that writing something special is such an egotistical thought. We are an ego driven species though, and I have always been in touch with that, for better or for worse. So I asked myself if I have ever written anything special, then I smiled and here I am, typing away. Perhaps I might have just found the cure for writers block, ask yourself who the fuck are you, ask yourself what difference any of it makes. Just have to put one finger in front of the other I guess you could say, as dirty as it sounds.
Other than the usual stuff, watching movies, reading books and such, I have my seasonal cold that signals, spring is finally here. The next few weeks, life will start to pick up again and get interesting again. Winter is not my season. For hours and hours on end I stare at my seti@home screen saver while I race cars on the XBOX, they say you are supposed to rest when you are sick, I do rest like it was a sport, winning gold metals every time. Right now it seems like everything is just hurry up and wait, life in suspended animation. Looking back on the past 100 posts, it seems strange, much like it did in the very beginning, that anyone has paid any attention and that this has gone as far as it has. Not that I am changing the world or anything but it is a good time.
Now plans are starting to form for other ideas and projects, the next 100 are forming in my head. If only I can stop distracting myself, if I just focus, I can keep myself on track. In the next few months, I am hoping to put together a new collection of poems, so keep an eye out for that. There is a short story that is coming along nicely because of all the science, space stuff I have been filling my brain with, it might be incredibly, completely epic or it could be absolute insanity, we shall see.
With things like concerts, the beach, plays in the park under the moonlight and my birthday coming up, things are just starting to get interesting. Most animals hibernate, I am no different but I am looking forward to getting out more. More than anything though, I am looking forward to the pool opening for the summer so I can go for a swim to work out the knots in my shoulders instead of taking a bunch of hot showers. Despite being sick I really do love this time of year more than any other. And with that I raise my glass and say, here’s to the future my friend. Onward and upward.
