Here it is, the fourth day of January, and not a SINGLE piece of writing--poetry or otherwise--has come my way.
Tlaqepaque is a very cool area in Sedona, Arizona filled with incredible art which I hoped would inspire me, but didn't. So, as usual, I turn to others' words. This arrived in my morning e-mail and while I don't usually pay attention to these things, I liked this one and it seemed a good one for the New Year. Though someone close to me labeled it "a bit sappy" (and I agree) it never hurts to be reminded of these things:
"As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.
Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin."
