Checking In!

Hey guys! Just checking in with everyone.

You’ve probably noticed that my last several posts have all been works of poetry instead of my usual ramblings. This is simply because I’m just really tuned into that kind of creative energy right now for some reason and I feel like taking advantage of it.

There’s also the fact that I’ve been feeling very distracted lately so it’s hard to put my focus on any one thing for too long. With poetry, it always comes to me very quickly and requires very little tweaking, so it’s just: Bing! Bang! Boom! Done!

So, my whole point is that you’ll probably be seeing mostly poetry for the next little bit and little else… Well, maybe the odd different thing here and there – who knows? But hey, this blog is titled Random Deviations, so randomness is what you signed up for!

I’ve also got more poetry on my Instagram page that hasn’t been showcased here, if you’re interested!

Hopefully everyone is well and taking good care of themselves amid all the quarantine craziness! Ta ta for now!

He’s supposed to stay home! “Is somebody stealing my toilet paper?” On and on it goes, with no end in sight.
