Sometimes in this Writing Life

Critters fed

Bread in the oven

Kitchen cleaned

REM  And I Feel Fine : Best of the IRS Years through out the house

Shelly’s landed safely in Toronto

Dog sleeps in the sun

And so it goes…

if you want to write – 2 cents from pd lyons

if you want to write


you don’t need to prep

you don’t need the latest gadget

you certainly don’t need to wait

you don’t need to even spell

what you need to do –


write more than you tv

write more than you worry

write more than you think

write more than you know –

and you don’t need to know much.

see no matter what you do

no matter what you live

no matter what your experience

its all material

its all educational

its all inspirational

if only you will –


then read.


Sometimes In This Writing Life ( Part: 3) by pd lyons

today is not the day for final readings

nor the day for the heart rendered into food for thoughts

no, not that or any other house work

not any mandatory thing at all


it is a day of something raw

something torn and warm

its own secret source of heat

pulled and pulling

my own

what is true remains.

for me writing is something I do, sometimes I want to sometimes I don’t, but always I do. as if someday maybe all those written words sifted through, subtracted from ,will leave remaining some thing I don’t know, but want to find out – what’s left after I subtract all the words of a life time – that’s what I want from it. For what is true remains.

Obsession, by pd lyons


in places he can’t get out of well
the woman leaves him
she doesn’t mean it to be that way
but neither does she concern herself about it
there was never any talk of her being kind to him.



happy new year


not what breaks your heart,

but what hardens it –

this causes true harm – djanet tozeur

ever onward something goes
