The Great Pause

The Great Pause

I’ve just been reading
About App design
And how it’s engineered
To keep us hooked
With those little
Feel good
Dopamine hits
At just the right moment.

I’m on social media hiatus
Aside from this blog.
My mind is returning
To sanity
I have such vivid dreams
Just like when I gave up wine.

My love is making
A gourmet feast
While I listen to a lilting piano
Write these words down
And life, today
Feels almost
Blissfully
Back to normal
But better.

I need to turn this
Crazy anxiety
Over the future
Around.
When will I ever
Have this opportunity
Again
To stop
And discover
Who I want to be
And
What I want to create?
