Abandon Text!

W. H. Auden once said: "Poems are not finished; they are abandoned." I have been abandoning writing projects for many years, since only the pressure of deadline and high expectations ever got me to finish, or even start, anything of merit. This blog is an attempt to create a more consistent, self-directed writing habit. Hopefully a direction and voice will emerge.

Memento Mori

"Let's play dinosaurs."
"Oh, I dont' want to, Aidan. I'm really tired."
"Well, you don't have to do a lot . . . you can be the plant-eater, and I'll be the meat-eater.
"Uh . . . OK."
"'Cause, you'll be dead soon."
"And, you rest a whole lot, when you're dead."
