Dear Brain…

Please let the ideas be there.

Please bring the joy.

Word gods, I’m speaking to you…

Inspiration, show yourself. Forgiveness, you’re invited, too.

Challenge me, brain. But be gentle with me. Treat me as kindly as I promise to treat you.

Let me take time to remember my friends.

Let me be confident enough in what I do to soar. Let me be humble enough to seek the next great place inside.

Let me do what writers do, and not suffer for it.

Let me find my patience.

Let me find the love. Let me find my characters. Let me find me.
