The Cleanest Windows

“Writers often have the cleanest
windows, floors, fridges, and toilets
the most up-to-date filing system
or the best record for returning calls or e-mails
because in the moment,
just about any task seems more palatable
than sitting down to write.”
Mark David Gerson, The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write

    As I read the definition I realized that I just about don’t know anyone not feeling neurotic right now. Could this be a precursor to huge volumes of written publications pouring forth from the masses?
    So good to hear fomr you. All my best to you!

  2. My neighbors always enjoy the seasonal decorations. And it provides me the push to keep my windows clean in the dust, dirt, and blowing wind of the high desert. Thank you for stopping by and contributing to the conversation.
