“Writing is 90 percent procrastination: reading magazines, eating cereal out of the box, watching infomercials.”

Sometimes it is hard to remember that our lives revolve around darkness and light. We can sometimes feel darkness overtaking us, even in the light of day.
Poets are often accused of living in a dark persona and there are many who spend a fair amount of time in the darker realm. But not all poets do, and if they do, it is not always an ongoing condition.
Currently, I am feeling pessimistic, as well as down. It would be nice to salvage some joy from this day. I'm open to a better disposition, but I am wrangled up in anxiety, and concern for another person. These are things that I do not really have control over, but they are significant and they are real
The extremes of light and darkness have a catchment area in between in which shades of grayscale can occupy.
I'm trying not to be too overwhelmed by all this, and there is a chance it could dissipate overnight, Or I could awake to it worse in the morning.
