If God asks that you bend, bend and do not complain. He is making you more flexible, and for this be thankful. ~Terri Guillemets

 

Welcome!

Today, I am extending an invitation of sorts. A few moments with your pen, paper and quietness as it finds you. Grab your journal, scrap paper or whatever is available.

I am heading into new territory, I hope you will continue to journey with me.  I will be sharing a few poems as I am led, on writing for the purpose of healing. I may share  poems written during my teen years in conjunction with current ones I am writing now in my fifties.

Welcome to the final installment in the 4 Seasons of the Writing Life.

“My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.” Anais Nin

 

I wonder what it was that caused you to put your pen to paper. Today, yesterday, right now. I wonder also what caused you to choose to share your writing. I wonder what your motive was to write at all? Have you thought about it?

Have you thought about the weight of your words, whether you share them or suppress them?

Has something caused you to stop writing? What?

About your writing- More
