The itch

04 May 2014 / 1 Comment / in Me, myself & I, writing

I itch. A scabbing over of my mind causing me to stretch against the tautness of boredom, of same-ness. I have the urge to do. But what?   To write? To travel? To breathe? To walk and walk and walk… I love spending time alone, it’s not that I want company 24/7. It’s that I feel […]
