This is the first day of my vacation; aside from cleaning out my sons' closet, I don't have any big plans--EXCEPT for this: my writing has fallen by the wayside, and summer will be the time to reclaim it. Today will be a writing day.
Wouldn't that make a neat holiday? A day on which everyone was encouraged to sit and think and write? I wonder if that would improve the state of things, or if it would just rile things up. Kafka wrote that "a book should be an ice pick to break up the frozen sea within us." I think writing can have the same effect.
So I'll work at pulling ideas from my own frozen sea.
