Do you agree that you can be more than one thing in life, at any given time?
To flow in one area – and stumble elsewhere?
More importantly, is it allowed?
When a composer spends the afternoon with his defence solicitor, is he capable (and permitted) to play another show in the evening?
When an architect misses her son’s football match, is she capable (and permitted) to finish her plan before bedtime?
When a poet loses his job, is he capable (and permitted) to free-write at sunrise?
I submit to difficult days. And use them as alibis for not writing.
Until I write.
And there’s nowhere left to hide.
