Bird on a Wire

Bird on a Wire

Key: R20110904-175435

Bird on a wire outside my motel room
But he ain’t singin’
Girl in white outside a church in June
But the church bells they ain’t ringing
I’m sittin’ here in this bar tonight
But all I’m thinkin’ is
I’m the same old story same old act
One step up and two steps back

From One Step Up.

Sometimes I feel there is no progress in my unpaid projects; too many responsibilities, too many distractions, and other excuses I could name. Then other times there is a small milestone passed that tells me I am making progress, however slight. It is these moments that are so important to keep the creative spirit burning, however low it might go. As long as it doesn’t go out, there is that next little draft to stir it up again. I tell myself it is all about the journey, and yet there is a little voice questioning whether that is all there is. You can’t take it with you, as they say…

One thought on “Bird on a Wire

  1. Count your blessings
    Count them one by one
    and it will amaze you
    to see all that you have done.

    (paraphrased)

    I am so glad that you HAVE the urge to have a creative spark. Some are not so inclined and, thus, live a less full life.
