I heard somewhere that if you find yourself in a creative rut, the best thing to do is to write down three things you know are true, and to do it daily with three more true things.
I started a new, grown-up job (which is no small item of celebration, don’t get me wrong), and I’m having that unfortunate, grown-up problem that is prevalent among those who sit at desks often, so here are my three for today:
1. The leaves spark and wither like tiny fireworks.
2. The stain of night widens, and autumn encloses us.
3. Every day, an inheritance.
What are your three?
