This week, Rob tells the Gemini:

Poet Kay Ryan told the Christian Science Monitor how she cultivates the inspiration to write. She rouses the sense of a "self-imposed emergency," thereby calling forth psychic resources that usually materialize only in response to a crisis. Please note that she doesn't provoke an actual emergency: She doesn't arrange, for instance, to have a loved one get pinned beneath the wheels of a car. Instead, she visualizes hypothetical situations that galvanize her to shift into a dramatically heightened state of awareness. This would be an excellent technique for you to try, Gemini. It's quite possible that simulating an imaginary crunch will prevent a real crunch. So picture yourself rescuing a talking parrot from a burning pet store; envision yourself making a snappy comeback that halts the abusive behavior of an out-of-control authority; imagine a nightmare in which you save the world.

I fucking love it! I haven't (and won't, mostly) be on LJ too often, but I haven't talked to you in too long,. I heard a little about the motorcycle thing and the stop of the DHPs, and I hope you are treating life well. Talk to you soon perhaps. ;-)

I think Rob's preaching to the choir here...

You *do* have a point :-)

Thought you might get a kick out of this:

A guide to performing an Exorcism.

Are you on GAIM by any chance? If so, what's your handle? I forgot.

Alas, I don't do the IM thing at work these days. I *did* just send you email, though, to the same address you list on LJ.
