When I hit a writing roadblock, I try my hand at painting, art journaling, collaging, and land art. The creative mind is engaged in a different way, and that can inspire writing with more clarity and creativity.

Other times, I'll watch a good movie, make or eat a good meal, or go for a walk to clear my mind and get my blood moving. (less)

Companions

I have no companion but Love, no beginning, no end, no dawn.

Rumi




To be alone is to be a companion to oneself.

“The child I was

Sheniz Janmohamed, Firesmoke

“When the last leaf falls,
what will die within us?”

“There is nothing in the world that is not mysterious, but the mystery is more evident in certain things than in others: in the sea, in the eyes of the elders, in the color yellow, and in music.”
Borges, Jorge Luis

“A writer - and, I believe, generally all persons - must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art.”
Jorge Luis Borges, Twenty-Four Conversations with Borges: Interviews by Roberto Alifano 1981-1983

“How can we manage to illuminate the pathos of our lives?”
Jorge Luis Borges, Borges on Writing
