"My ever present yearnings to create while I'm in a dead-end 9-5 job. "

Free Write

I am sitting here, overthinking acutally, just what I should write about. I yearn for carefree days where my time is my own and not scheduled in anyway, except for what I want to do. I guess that's called retirement, but I want it now. I'm tired, so tired,of contraints. I have them on all levels it seems, but perhaps the most voicerous one is mine. There is so much I want to do, to write, to paint, to see, to touch, to explore, to experience, to know, to be that it seems as though my days are just disappearing with nothing to show for it. I want to create beautiful works of art, of literature, of relationships with all the people around me - each one more beautiful, simply because they are who God has created them to be. But we are often trapped in who we think we want to be and our lives become prison sentences. I'm tired of that. I'm tired of just existing and not really living. I want, no, I crave Joie de Vivre... I have it sometimes, but I want it to exude from who I am and who I was created to be and what I was created to do.
