…it’s been a while I know…. For a creative…..having writers’ block is a fate worse than death.
For the past few months….I found myself counting down….to the end of the day, to the end of the week…to the end of the month….and I realized… all I am doing is wishing time away….things are progressing hastily around me….even major changes in my own life (like being rehabilitated by the supreme court of South Africa…lol) …..But I feel like I’m standing still amidst the chaos…..watching it all go round and round…..
I rummaged through some of my stored belongings the other day and came across this clock. I bought it… when I moved out on my own for the very first time many years ago…. I was so chuffed with my purchase on my bedside table….but during the night, the ticking woke me up….so I got up and hid the clock under the blankets… inside my locked cupboard…..and climbed back into bed……but I could still hear the clock ticking away. As you can see….it didn’t end well for the clock, but yet for some reason, this broken clock stuck with me through thick and thin…..until I packed it away two years ago in a brown box.
People often tell you….hold on to the good memories, but sometimes it’s those particular good memories that destroy you….that drag you down into an ugly dark world of despair. After all this time trying to find peace and closure….it weren’t finding the clock and restoring it back into my life that gave me the closure I was looking for….but finding it was a sign…..that it’s sometimes ok to bury some good memories
I’m bored….and this is completely out of character for me… we talking about someone that slots daydreaming into her daily to-do list 🙂 So drastic action is required…and to those who knew Catherine pre the cheating ass Lincoln(I just HAD to get that in there one last time…lol)…..can vouch you in for a helluva funny, exciting… ride ahead.
