Gratitude (a free write)

Thank God for good friends and ice cream. Hugs after dishonor, songs on repeat, for computer keys and dishes washed, for train rides & I made it texts. For lovers lips and cheap thrills. For lunch dates and matinees. Thank god for hot showers and first writings since, for ex lovers and new friends. For letting go and fighting to stay. Thank god for laughter and speechlessness. for my stutter when caught off guard. For the red in my cheeks, the imagination how it runs, for the still in my body. The air on the night I realized I wanted you to be the last to kiss my 20 something lips. Wanted to leave this love affair in the silliness of my youth. Wanted you to let me. And this gratitude is not for nothing. Does not just settle in the soil. This grows wishes and magnifies dreams

  1. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
