The long and winding road

Sometimes our dreams feel so far away, lost upon a crooked path that never seems to lead directly to anywhere we want to go. There are distractions and deviations along the way; when we finally get past those, it seems we’re still slogging uphill like Sisyphus (though hopefully without the boulder).
I say I want to write. I better damn well do it, no matter where that path goes. I should follow it and follow my dreams, but I keep finding ways to stray, and other dreams poke their head in and say, “hey, remember me? how you used to like to do fill in the blank?” and I’ll nod and look longingly at the piano or the easel (the one I don’t have, so the analogy breaks down a bit here) or the web design or the whatever-caught-my-fancy-today.
Discipline, that’s what I need. Anyone know where I can find any?
There was supposed to be a party tonight, but it’s off, so I better use the night to my advantage. Let’s see what happens. Motivation, I’m looking at you!

    We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities. Ralph Waldo Emerson
