A quote that really speaks to me!

'Why does my Muse only speak when she is unhappy?
She does not, I only listen when I am unhappy
When I am happy I live and despise writing
For my Muse this cannot but be dispiriting.'

Stevie Smith 1902-71 (1964 My Muse)

Fab quote. Why is that we never write when we are happy and that people struggle to listen when we are happy. Not a good thing really. And a challenge as a writer,
Keep well, betheserpent.

And thank you for your company on my travels,

love Benedict
