DS106 Daily Challenge #tdc1592: Make a poem about @johnjohnston

I’ve always liked a limerick 🙂

Sometimes the creative process can be painstakingly draining, I had this experience yesterday – It’s still rewarding but it comes with challenges all it’s own, as it takes you out of your comfort zone, challenging you to explore those methods of content engagement that you (or I, as the case may be) have consciously neglected or unconsciously ignored.

Then you get those easier tasks, they access your skills and caress your sensibilities with ease, like reciting your favourite prose verbatim, it’s brain muscle memory, and the rhythm and cadences tilt you towards the familiar, it’s comfortable and consoling like a steaming cup of hot chocolate savoured under the habit of blanket you’ve wrapped yourself in, memories enticed, the security of a baby…
