Hello, my friends. I have fallen into the rabbit hole and emerged into a land of creativity. I’m bombing around in my old home, Seattle, and it feels fantastic.
I didn’t write much when I lived here. I was surrounded by this bustling, artistic city and I was focused on schooling. Being a (kind of) newlywed. Figuring out what to do with a new, tiny bundle of joy. Learning how to enjoy life in abject student poverty. It was an awesome time full of change, but I do wish that I had taken advantage of what the city had to offer. Like trapeze classes! How can life be ho-hum if you can take trapeze classes?
Anyway, it feels fantastic to come back. I slid back into everything like I had never left. My brain is churning with creative ideas, but perhaps the most valuable insight is that I’m now determined to take in what Vegas has to offer while I’m still there. What can I learn in Vegas that I can’t learn anywhere else? (And no, I’m not talking pole-dancing.) It’s an opportunity to enrich my writing as well as enriching my life. Rock on.
Is there anything that you want to do in your city/town that you haven’t done yet? What’s stopping you?
