A lot of things in life can be streaky. The leading scorer in the league – pick your sport – gets to the playoffs and goes. Ice. Cold.
When it happens to you, you think, “I’ve lost it. Or maybe I never had it, maybe it was all a massive fluke.” You kick the dog, get bitchy with your friends and co-workers, lock your keys in the car, get the shopping cart that eats your coin – or you think it did, until a lady with a walker comes over and pulls on the handle and the cart pops free. Easy as pie. And she explains that there is no coin required; that you just shoved a dollar into a crack in the plastic grip.
Stupid Home Depot.
Then it turns and while no one really knows what it is… we all know exactly what it feels like when it comes or goes.
But, really, I brought it on myself. I dared it to leave. “How?” you ask?
I took on topics that were harder to write: race, gender, sexual orientation, religion and age. Plus, I submitted to unfamiliar sites and journals with big league reps. So, if I went a little cold, I have no one to blame but the crusty old bugger in the mirror.
Stupid old guy.
Anyway, today I received an email from Anthony Self, Head of Film and Co-Director @ Storgy.com. They liked my story. They are going to publish it.
It’s back, mother****er, it’s back!
“The Log Boom” will be presented on Storgy.com on May 19.
