How do you deal with writer’s block?
“If you can quit, then quit. If you can’t quit, you’re a writer.” R.A. Salvatore
“If you can’t annoy somebody, there is little point in writing.” Kingsley Amis
” Why would we write if we’d already heard what we wanted to hear?” James Richardson

When I think of Puerto Rico
in my minds eye
|Central mountainous zone 1898 Puerto Rico|
Puerto Rico stuck in the persistent state of 1898. Unwilling to change.
A one hundred year old child.

Economically poor then and now.

Puerto Rico is 1898 encapsulated.
Puerto Rico refusing to change remains a commonwealth suppressed. A prize of the Spanish American war. An American possession needing protection since 1898. Protection from what exactly, I cannot explain. Culturally rich, with traces from every corner of the planet proudly waving two flags. Bearing children with double identities. Holding on tightly to illusions of self government. Forever scrambling in frustration caused by this duality.
Puerto Rico, there is no denying your richness, beauty and my love for you.
