no new words…

Some days there are no new words.

Nothing original to say. No insights, musings or ruminations. This is different than writers block which, for me, is not being able to decide how to say what I want to say. “No new words” is more specific.

When you make colored icing for cookies or a cake, there is moment when you add the drops of food coloring to the bowl of snowy white icing and draw the knife through. The color swirls and spreads creating a fascinating and beautiful design. And when you are done – it is all one color.

Some days thoughts and ideas are stirred too thoroughly, and its all one color.

No new words.
