I’m still here.
I’m having a very hard time managing work/life/creativity balance at present. Seems like I’m overwhelmed by many degrees, and all I really want to do is sit down and write. For the first time in a long time, I am adrift on a sea of indecision and lack the appropriate focus. This exercise, today, is one of articulating my issue; in hopes that it will gain traction in my arena of accountability. I look forward to finding my way back and sharing the madness of my mind yet again. Thank you for your continued patience, and for being there for me.
looking to break on through to the other side.

Welcome to my effort. Yes, as a great procrastinator, it requires great effort to stay focused on something productive that matters to me. I’ll find any old excuse to traipse from project to project, and I rarely end up at the place I started. I find this maddening, and exhaustive. So it is with high hopes, and a greater grasp of self-awareness, that I embark upon staying the course so to speak.
I enjoy writing. Be it blogs, fiction, poetry, etc. I love the craft and the act of creation, the art in and of itself, for it’s own sake and end. I am happy to be able to do it.

Place of residence: Somewhere in the land of metro Boston. It’s vaguely familiar and becoming home more and more by the day, but when you come from “The Town” all else fails by comparison.
Favorite Color: I’m partial to all forms of blue.
Favorite Author: c’mon! don’t expect me to answer that, there are too many.
I enjoy memories of playing 80’s Atari better than playing any advanced gaming system that exists today.
Hope to be recognized for my paper clip collection. As well as my 27 rejected applications to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailiey Clown college.

One thought on “Flailing and Failing”
Reading back on your own posts, you’re probably thinking this: http://cphickey77.com/2014/07/22/air-and-light-and-time-and-space/ and the words of Chuck and punching yourself.
It’s in you. You’re creating all the time. And whether it’s out on paper, firing pixels or melted crayons or not, it will come out. Give yourself time to breathe.
Let’s have a contest-the first person to do something for which they are proud and 1,000 people sees it before we each turn 80 wins.
