I've decided that (at least for now) I'm leaving. My inspiration is lacking, and my desire to pursue any more writing is beyond waning. My final publication will be this next week, when I submit my Music History term paper in the form of a tanka. I don't really care if I never write outside of class again, right now. I have my own other forms of expression, and I'm sick of all this crap I find when I sit down to write. Yes, everything I write is off the cuff, so, if I happen to find inspiration again, I may pick up the pen once more, but for now, I'm through with it. I'll probably keep up the blog, but as far as poetic or prose submissions, don't expect much--you'll only disappoint yourself.

I had my horn studio recital last night. I was very high on Vicodin during the performance, so I don't remember much. I've been told it was quite good. I just remember being in searing pain by the end of it, though this time, I could still hold a pitch. I'm looking forward to next semester, though. 10 classes for 15 hours of credit. Hooray for being a music major. If it weren't for my 5 hour Chemistry course/lab, I would be taking 8 classes, yet not be considered a full-time student. How's that for crazy?

Alright, that's it. I'm out. Frieden.

-Lao Tzu

'Tomorrow will take us away,
Far from home--
No one will ever know our names,
But the bards' songs will remain.
Tomorrow, all will be known,
And You're not alone,
So don't be afraid
In the dark and cold
'Cause the bards' songs will remain.
They all will remain
In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind....
Come close Your eyes;
You can see them, too.'

Farewell Co.konspirator

This appealed to me from two sides. I remember, and I am mother now, my oldest soon to leave me.
Advice for you, and me and she... make it happen.
Sounds so stupid but it's true, and backed up metaphysically, and recently, physically. Gonna get another percocet now, cause my back is killing me... check in from time to time. I enjoy your work.

My friend. Remember the passage in Ecc 'A time to embrace and a time to refrain.' Please keep on blogging though. I may not be able to comment always as I am not well versed in commenting to articles, opinions and blogs, but I can promise to read just so I could keep track on your life as a very good, devoted artist. You are lucky to have good musical skills, while most of us don't really have the tiniest potential.

Namaste, Peter

William it is sad to see you go
but as I told Paul who is also leaving, hopefully for a break too..if you must, then do so, get your rest.
I find it hard to believe you have run out of things to say. Like I often find it's not running out of things to say, but the drive to say them; the wanting to share. Sometimes something feels like it has died and we feel we can't get it back, but it always does come back.
I sure hope you do too, for I will miss you, as I already have been.
Take good care of yourself. If I never see or hear of you again, I want you to know that you have touched my life with inspiration William.
