Habit Keeping

Admittedly, my attention is a bit unfocused today. I usually like to write about a particular thought or experience that I’ve had lately, but right now I’m drawing a curious blank. Part of me wonders whether this is a stress response: life has been complicated and full of unanswered questions and unresolved circumstances lately. I can’t help but think that my brain has tuned itself to bars-and-tone as a way to avoid dealing with these unfinished thoughts.

On the up side this means that my mood has been reasonably steady lately- certainly consisted to the uncontrollable years of the prior two weeks- but on the down side I’m also having trouble accessing my creativity and making any notable progress on my various projects. It’s difficult to work up a flow state when you can’t seem to sink into your work.

So it’s another day of putting pen to paper and just committing to the act of writing, even if I’m not putting down any useful content. It’s a day of writing letters and writing rather uninspired posts like this one in an effort to keep myself in good habits. Now that I’m back on social media it would be easy to fall into the trap of just surfing endlessly instead of making awkward, clunky attempts to communicate like this one. I want to at least be able to say I tried.
