slip sliding away

in


It seems that I have a case of blogger's block. I've started a few, I have a plethora of saved drafts, I have the Bar Mitzvah to chronicle, but all i've been able to muster is Joke Friday, maybe out of a sense of duty. I even thought maybe i should change the name of the blog to Joke Friday. So when the going gets tough the tough get going, so i was even thinking that maybe i should announce a break; oh no, not again, idle threats. But that usually does work to get me going again. But this time the answer presented itself when i was cleaning out my file drawer in my desk, throwing out old insurance papers from years and plans past. There they were my old poems from when I don't want to tell you when; let's just say they were on onion paper and if you don't know what that is, i'm not telling you. so that's just what i did, i typed in some more of my old poems from the previous century.

Nothing cures writer's block faster than announcing you are going on a hiatus. That, and plagiarism. (My personal standby.)
