POETRY: THE LONG DRIVE

The path goes onward
Sometimes paved and sometimes not
But forward I go

*

Tired feet, sore bones
Life takes its toll on us all
Night comes,will I sleep

*

Can I rest a while
Would that break some unknown rule
Where does the road go

*     *     *

Still getting back into the swing of things: new job, new house, almost a new baby. I'm hoping to get more posted next week and get everything caught back up to speed.

POETRY: SLOW (re)START

Long breaks make weary
Old habits fade, new ones form
Reassert my will

*

Lazy Summer day
Sit outside, lie in the grass
Must I work today?

*

Imagination
Whole worlds are inside me
Yet gathering dust

*     *     *

     My break from writing is coming to an end, but I'm having a hard time breaking out of the inertia. Still, I'm getting there.

SORRY FOR THE DELAY...

   Moving, filming, and lots of other things have happened recently that have kept me from writing my usual posts. But no one likes to hear excuses, so let me just tell you about how the 48 Hour Film Competition went.

   We made a musical comedy and a cut of the film got submitted to be viewed in competition. That's the good news.

   Here's the bad. We were late (like last year so we can only be considered for the audience awards), people got mad, and eventually the team broke apart due to threats and violence. It's always really sad when the stress of the competition gets to people in that way. I think that's why it's so important for teams to know one another very well before going into something like this, because miscommunication is poison and when a team is unfamiliar with how everyone works, it increases the likelihood of bad vibes.

   If/when I do this or any other film competition,I'm going to be the Director (I was just the writer the last time), and I'm going to hand pick my team.

   Still, overall, I had a good time and learned a lot.
