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 can start to make sense. Once I have both myself and the universe figured out, I plan to take up macrame. "Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing, and learn as you go." E. L. Doctorow
