Saturday Music: Who Wants to Live Forever

Going to try and revive this feature. A little late in the day (night?) but I was cleaning the house (gasp!) and then conked myself out on an allergy pill. Fortunately, I had Thomas on, so my little didn’t go wandering off.

But! That means tonight is for writing, and I have an old project that’s come out of the woodwork with a new plot and a new hope. So, to celebrate, here’s basically the theme song of the piece.

Kinda fitting when you’re writing immortals, lol.

Silence, or A Writing Parent’s Lament

There is a perfect silence, for the moment.

No machines run. No dogs bark. No clocks tick.

It has been done. Oh, great hallelujah, it has been done.

Softly, gently, the pencil moves, never quite disturbing the silence which enfolds the space as a heavy blanket.

Words flow, a quiet river of contentment, creativity thrives.

Shriek! A cry. Silence broken. The blanket shredded beyond all hope…

The toddler has arisen from his nap.

(Just a bit of silliness to share)
