The strangest things can be inspirational

As many of you know I was recently extremely ill. What few of you know is that I have since been terrified that the illness caused permanent brain damage. I've been unable to think, focus, concentrate. On the occasions I tried to ride over it my poetry has been crap, my critique has been obtuse and insensitive and I tended to fly off into blind rages (that one's not new).

So I've mostly been watching tele, not even reading. But a lot of that watching has been 'House'. You ever seen it? The irascible, drug addict brilliant diagnostician? No wonder I relate.

He has inspired me to be myself and do what I do.

Maybe even some poetry may emerge.

cheers
Jess

I too had that same problem where everything I did just didn't seem to amount to anything that I considered repairable! I noticed now that at that time I really felt at my lowest and didn't feel that anything in my life was what I wanted or where I wanted to be. I've also seen that when I'm sick and bed-ridden for days or weeks and lose all contact with society or, at least my everyday hum-drum, I was put in a mood that just wouldn't leave. I don't like to NOT be able to do for myself, i don't know why it bothers me so much but it does, but i get down on myself and it has a ripple effect. I just wanted to say that I relate to you and it will get better! You were born with your talent and it will stay with you if you BELIEVE in it!

thanks, friend, just finished commenting on your poem then came to this.

I suspect you are more than 30 years younger than me but we have similar minds. I am going to post an old poem of mine "Rats" that you might relate to.

Write and post what you write even if you think it's crap. Some of what I thought was inferior poetry I've written received the best reviews here. I thought by now you would know that a poet is his/her worst judge of their own work lol.
Now on to the important part : Did you know tha actor who plays House is British ans except on the show speaks wiyh a decided British accent? Another littlt known and useless fact lmao...................stan

It's true we are our own worst judges.

cheers,

He said he had to make up an accent that fit the part so he mixed up different ones
