Writer’s Lift Wednesday #40

This is a writersliftwednesday blog, sharing the works of fellow writers, poets, artists (including photographers, painters, etc.) and persons random. All re-blogs will be linked appropriately to their authors and creators.

Writing is no easy calling and nothing easy was ever worth doing. Support each other by sharing, liking and commenting.

(1) I like Colleen’s rating scale, particularly “0,” or DNF (do not finish). A book reviewer after my own heart 🙂

(2) A painting entitled, “Too Much Water and Too Much Foam,” via Placid Painting. I’m certain my eyes are just unrefined in this area but the piece looks balanced to me. It’s hard putting your work out there, more so if you understand there to be flaws. Thanks for sharing!

(3) “Possibility of Existence,” a lot to think about. So many layers and lines intersecting life and art.

What’s up, pals? November was a whirlwind; I can’t believe it’s already over! 2020 has flown by and honestly, thank God for that. (Not that you should wish away your life, but for real. 2020 has been one for the books for all of us.) This month, I finished my first semester of grad school and am headed off into a two (2)-month-long break. During that time, I think you know what I’ll be doing……. reading every book on my shel– nope. Eating mac and cheese, duh!

3. “Possibility of Existence,” by River Dixon via The Stories In Between

In deciding whether to maintain

Or shatter the monotony

I realize my underlying

Fixation with lines

A love affair, really

Tracing, connecting, standing in

Where would I be, for not

The linear encampment of routine
