Remember when…

No, I don’t either. Maybe a little, vaguely. Remember when the words flowed easily from the darkest corners of my mind, almost effortlessly they would find their way out through the tips of my fingers as they tapped furiously and passionately upon the keys creating seamless works of art, line after line, paragraph after paragraph, page after page?
