After a fairly lazy, beach-centric January of over-consumption and underachievement, February for me is a time to rev the creative engines and get moving. It’s a time for reintegrating into daily life with a fresh tan, a fresh perspective and a renewed sense of purpose. As my brain slowly flickers back online, it demands once again to be fed with inspiration and that means art of all kinds but especially words, which never fail to fan the flames. Even the simple act of pausing for a moment to pour over a truly incredible sentence – its form and structure, its particular cadence and unique resonance – is enough to wake up the neurons and remind me why I left that cozy spot on the beach and returned to this so-called work.
