Taking some time off

Not sure when I will be back. It has been a rough couple of days. Here’s a song that runs through my head in these sorts of moments. I’m just a slow-emotion replay of somebody I used to be.

The scorpion and the frog

Ever hear the parable about the scorpion and the frog?

I’ve learned recently that a lot of us are true to our nature. Maybe we are the scorpion. Maybe we are the frog. I’m learning my own nature as a writer, and it’s not nice sometimes. There are days I’m more scorpion.

As you go through life, you are left with nothing but memories and stories are the only place to put them.

Good, bad. Bittersweet. Heartwarming. My nature doesn’t always mean I’m a lot of fun to be around. And trust me when I say that I write with a pen dipped in Hell.
