"Why don't you simply change your job?"
"What do you mean simply? Stop being writer?"
"Why not! Reinvent yourself", advised my helpful therapist.
I followed his advice. I got a job as a waitress in a Portuguese restaurant. One of my co-workers sometimes recites Pessoa to me after work, over a glass of wine, but that is pretty much my only contact with literature. I no longer have literary nightmares. I dream pleasant, refreshing dreams.
