She tells me something,

I listen but don’t at all, not a 

Word.

I glare, meditate, then die.

This writer’s chemistry and ideological geography, peerless for Day 1 of week.  Drawing my time as I see it needing to be drawn and laid before me.  Do the same.  Do the same for you and what you want.  Write what you want over and over… cover a page of your journal with one singular aim.  Start with that.  Newborn week, newborn ideas, possibilities, dreams and visions and embodiment of YOU, reader.  Travel, grow, if not physically then through thought.  All is plausible, possible, likely with your thoughts.  With new thoughts, on a new day, in a new week.  

from an essay

…There was purpose to us being there, my 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and beyond-grade classes, but it was for fun and learning to be helixes, coupled, right there with each other.  Here, you have deadlines, in college.  There’s pressure, and you can feel it and hear it in hearing nothing, now in Week 11 of the semester.  I always used to get monster books, manuscripts thin but rich in monstrous and beastly content.  Vampires, swamp things and blobs, Frankenstein and his like-associates and characters, and whatever else I could find that I could read when home, at night before bed.  My boy, a tireless kindergartner with research urges, chases books with animals and other lands, plants and natural amazements like volcanoes, storms, oceans and mountains, other countries and desserts.  He, although having fun in his library check-ins, shows a pursuit of something.  He’s far past where I was at his stage, age.  Huh, he’s past where I am now, in this sitting looking out at Emeritus and at that tree, the stoplight, the little circular table or wooden ottoman (on where a book, one of my journals, my main one, and some late submissions from students, folded in half, rest), more trees, telephone wires.  He actuates more scholastic aptitude and practice than his college-teaching, somewhat of an essayist, daddy.
