Thoughts on Writing

I am attempting to remember the thoughts that echoed through my mind earlier.
Now as I recall the words, I am finding instead a humble remembrance for all that I am.


The longing to write.
The desire to trust that I am on my path.

My heart is racing with the cadence of my hands.
Hands that have held longing…

What is it going to take to actually let myself immerse in my own writing?
Not just the daily chatter of my morning musings, but fully completely devoted to the task of completion?

It is a journey.
A process that I have been making for half of my life.

There is no need to question how it gets done.
It only matters that I am making steps each day on my path.

The ‘how’ is in the doing of what one knows to do.
Each day you may think that you will begin the day in another way.

That you will not loose yourself in endless reading.
Yet you watch the time slip from you as you escape into another world.
Another place that you may feel temporarily safe.

The guilt is beginning to creep in on you.
Yet you waver in bed longer.
The sun’s been up…

How do others; as artists, poets, writers, and fellow “creatives” engage their energy and time?
Instead of beating ourselves up…can we find gratitude in the moments that we do take to create?
To trust that this day you will find the determination to begin anew.

You are creating your life work.
Honor the process…

May this piece, this poem, this musing provide some compassion.
As we find joy in the journey however it may unfold!
