Sometimes, when leading the writerly life, the best moments are spent not writing but just breathing.
Sometimes a book and camera will do just fine.
The less said about this journey the better.
Step one, find a quiet place of beauty.
A little gazeebo overlooking Omura Bay works just fine.
Step two, read cyberpunk while drifting in and out of sleep. Check!
Step three. Take time for local art. The free museum on your daily walk that features local artists will do just fine.
Find the key to dreams without really looking.
What is the octopus doing in the picture? A profound question best left for another time.
It is possible that every place in the world has a local restaurant or coffee shop that is waiting especially for you. Remember this and smile.
When your day is over, leave reflection for another time. For now, just breathe. Your journey is complete.
Sometimes, the best way to live the writerly life is to enjoy little moments with a book, a camera, and whatever the world may provide.
There are many ways to nourish the imaginative soul.
