Melancholia Over Coffee

What do you want to do today?

My daughter asked me that as if I’d have an answer.

I have a million things I could be doing – I should be doing.

A dog wash is on the list. The 11-year-old sled dog is rather ripe right now. Then a walk to the lake.

And maybe something to get me out of the mood right out of a Poe story.

I have coffee and a million stories running in my head but when my fingers touch the keyboard or a pen I freeze up and can’t find the physical or mental energy to do anything.

We have a nectarine tree to plant. We have fog drenched roses to prune. We have to play Wii Dance 15.  We need to laugh.

I’ll work a Werewolf story around in my mind and think about tales from my Vampire brothers I can share. I have books to finish. I’ll write down stories later of teens and school and friendship and even a magic trick. I will let the cats in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out.

I’ll finish my coffee, start my Saturday and be glad I am not Annabel Lee.
