I simply want to enjoy this weekend, hang out with my wife Nancy, hit a couple BBQ’s and just let it all go for a day or two. But nooooo! My muse is exploding with endless inspiration, and my creative spirit is firing off great ideas like a pack of lit firecrackers! Neither one of them cares that it’s a 3-day weekend because they both insist that holidays were intentionally invented by the demons of distraction to keep me from doing my work. I’ve told them both I just want a day off, but they look at me puzzled: “You’re an artist,” they whisper, “artists never stop creating, never stop for anything. Screw distraction. Stay focused. You’re an artist…you’re a writer…keep working your art.”
