Just Not Feeling It

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    I didn’t really want to like this post, but the raw honesty in it deserves my ‘like’.
    I know that feeling like all you want to do is curl up in a ball and wait for things to get better. Sometimes, it’s not such a bad idea really. And at other times, acting on it helps. I experienced that yesterday.

    Maybe look at this link, if it could help?

    I know they helped me.

    Hugs, and keep knitting. Wish I would start again, but will probably not take it up any time soon, I need to write and don’t find enough time to. :-/
    Hey, everyone has their own problems 😉

    I never doubted it for a second, Pinky. You are HERE.

    I’m so glad you are. I know things are rough, but you owe no-one your writing, not even yourself. I hope your time knitting and watching has been good ‘down-time’ for your mind, and restful for your soul. There is a time for all things, even not-writing.

    That said, I’d take the tropical holiday if I could – I’m in sore need of some warmth and sunshine.

    The thing I do when I’m feeling hopeless is go to sleep. I think it’s the human equivalent of hitting Ctrl + Alt +Del a few times.
