It’s getting harder to balance.


Raising family.

Racing around town.


And with all the media shrapnel flying about

that you can’t ignore because it’s too important

and you can’t ignore because there’s too much at stake.

Drums of war that never cease.

And then there’s the writing.

Always looming in the corner of my mind.

Threatening me with a dry well.

A creative hell that will pull me to my grave.

It’s getting harder to balance.
