Mondays are just young Fridays

Morning fog limits perspective.
As much surprise as wonder,
as isolating as illuminating,
we naturally want to see further.
Your vantage point stays the same.

Darkness will come, it always does,
the view will be different tomorrow.

and clear, the entire notebook
unmarred, virginal, laid out and
ready to be used.
  Think of the things you can do
with a blank notebook. Make a list,
write them down; chances are
these first few moments will be
the last chance you have to insert
any order. A blank notebook can
be dangerous as it takes control
of how you express yourself,
whether you document, doodle,
dream, or dare.
  Don’t be too cautious, let the
words take you where you need
to go. Yes, there will be mistakes,

than the written word, but nothing
is as inspiring as a blank page.
