flooded, ii


"The more I am, the less I know
And what I do is all too much"
George Harrison

you take a piece and
then an
other
and it's all too much
like he said it was
so take a piece but not too much
because I am

sinking.
I want to float, 

be filled without drowning.

Flooded by your needs
I am
sinking
and it's all too much
it's all too much
you know...

I have a question: Do you keep a writer's notebook? And if so- what do you write about and what do you find inspirational? (:

Hi Sophia..sorry for the delay in responding! Just came back from hiding out in the woods ;)
I have so many notebooks - I'd be hard-pressed to find them all in a moment. I make sure always that there is paper on me & in the car & in every room, along with a pen. They also hide out beneath my couches so if I'm laying there and something comes to me, I can reach for paper without giving it a second thought.
What do I find inspirational? The unexpected(especially from people, strangers included). And paying attention to the beauty and small miracles that surround me at all times - as long as I remember to 'look up'!
Thanks for your question:-)
