    I think creative “droughts” often proceed some profound creativity. It’s just a liminal moment, hard to preduct what’s coming … but something will come. That’s for sure. No worries, Victoria.

  5. I sympathise with your droughts – poetic and rainwise, and hope both are alleviated soon. Conversely, it has been raining pretty well nonstop for more than a week here!

    I wish you storms for your droughts! My car is gloriously muddied by a camping trip in the North Woods, and I couldn’t be more pleased. I am, however, expecting Midwest showers to wash it off tomorrow.
