I Will Be Here

IMG_8647Only I won’t be.


Because writing demands isolation. Solitude. Aloneness. To hear the voices.

For the next week, I will be immersed. On Edisto. Comparing earth to water to sky. Walking. But not responding to comments. Or reading blogs.

I don’t know how to elaborate. Because anything I type comes off as bitchy. And I am not a bitch.



I won’t be here for the next week.

Perhaps I will check in with an otherworldly view.

Of Edisto.

The Atlantic.

Sand and sea and sky.

We shall see.

  13. Is it wrong that I’m excited that, due to your absence, this is one less blog I’ll be behind in reading by the time the weekend rolls around (and I’m able to catch up).
