Week 8 – Exercise #1

Laptop Open

I sat quietly in my study, praying mantras to the gods of art.

Laptop open, fingers poised, I waited for an excuse to keep me from the inevitable.

Nothing.

Still I waited.

I wondered what was going on in the book of faces.

So I looked.

Even though I didn’t care.

Moments later, I sat –

Laptop open, fingers poised, I waited for another excuse to keep me from the inevitable.

Nothing.

So I pictured a scene in my head,

Where I sat quietly in my study, praying mantras to the gods of art.

Laptop open, fingers poised, I waited for an excuse to keep me from the inevitable.

And I wrote about it…

So goes the twice a week exercise

And my dedication to the ritual.
