V. 2, #19: April 15, 2013

Like Hamlet said, the readiness is all:
so rub the sleep out, friend, and be alert.
You never know when Chance will make the call,
so sitting by the phone's not going to hurt.

Clear everything between you and the door;
Lace up your shoes, stretch out your legs and calves,
hydrate, and wait, fingers pressed to the floor,
eyes up and open--don't do things by halves.

Stay tense, notched like an arrow in a bow,
and when you hear it, take off like a jet!
Maybe you'll miss it still, but not for lack
of heart. Life takes some things you don't get back,
and hesitation only breeds regret,
which is the worst. Believe me, kid--I know.

Scott, it's great to see you've restarted the Sonnet Project. Thank you.

I understand your reasons, too. Keeping something as simple as a comic journal gives shape to my days and travels.

Thanks so much for the comment, Harry! I honestly didn't expect anyone to notice. :)

Funnily enough, I considered going into journal comics, as I've rekindled my interest in drawing lately. But words are my real talent and passion, and I've missed this. Hopefully I've got another year in me.
