The Dream is more precise than wakefulness

Tom:
Some writing comes easy, especially the exposition of the critical – the writing that comes from the head.  But what is the worth?

Most writing now painful and difficult.  Hours spent at the computer staring at the screen without a single keystroke.

You seek to capture a feeling or a thought that is true and important, or you inhabit a world of your imagination, and then you take that precious and evanescent wisp and try to reify it in the form of words.

You stagger through a maze of spaces, lost.

Me:
I recall Paul Elouard´s words:

“Write first, think after.”

His point may be worthwhile to consider…

I so recognize what you are “struggling” with. The “precision” we strive after may be so elusive.. So decisively eluding our deliberate pursuit…

That evanescent clarity doesn´t let itself be “captured”.

It is…

The in-between…

The un-wording…

The up-rooting…

One has to constantly begin…
And persistently remind oneself to end.

The ending of no beginning…

Sometimes the Dream is more precise than wakefulness…
