control z

i live with one foot firmly planted in the world of imagination and fantasy 
and i like being there, 
able to infinitely repeat and revise the moments in my life
that upon reflection cause me dissatisfaction.
i rewrite and edit the whats and whys and hows 
until the incidents play out better,
until i am, in those moments witty and sharp and brave and beautiful and fierce;
a nice contrast to the subdued acquiescence and least resistance that is
more often my chosen path.

I like writing. Words help me unpack my thoughts so things start to make sense. I suppose that once I figure out life, the universe, and everything (my thanks to Douglas Adams), I'll have nothing left to say. "Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing, and learn as you go." E. L. Doctorow
