When I was married, my wife was an artist working primarily in oils. Sometimes she wouldn’t paint for days. When I would ask her about it, she would say she wasn’t feeling it or wasn’t feeling creative. I never disagreed with her, but silently I didn’t really understand this thought process. Since I started writing poetry, which many consider an art form, I now understand what she was talking about. There are days I’m not “feeling it”. I was basically not able to write during the month of October. Not sure why, nothing bad happened to divert my thought process, just couldn’t. This is often referred to as “writer’s block”. I’m going to go back to my roots and see if I can force start the process. I miss reading the strange things that spring from my brain.

I would say, for the most part my life has been low key, but I do have some experiences not everybody has. I graduated from the University of Washington with a Business degree majoring in accounting. I have worked for two of the components of the Dow Industrial Average index. I was briefly a member of the 1% club and misplaced my membership card. I have ridden motorcycles, wrecked a 40’ boat, had a 36’ boat destroyed in a marina fire and spent two weeks in court being sued for $500k (I won). As a self-employed builder, I built over 300 homes and had 20 people working for me. I still have a couple of dragons to slay, this blog being one of them. View all posts by PDR
