Signs of Life

Here's where I am today. Brain cooking. Hands moving. A good day is a day that one is creating something.

Which reminds me of what I wrote about in my journal this morning. It goes like this - we are always, all of us, creating "something". We get up each morning and work on the life that we have been fashioning since the day we were born. Much of our creation is instinctive and based on what we have been taught to believe. What we have been taught to expect. What we expect based on our own history and on our parents' history.

I have a friend once who lost over 100 pounds. He was a software writer by trade. When I asked him how he did it he said, "I changed the software". He didn't explain the details but I get it that he was able to change the way he thought about eating and about his eating habits. Within a few years his wife had also accomplished a major weight loss. Something in their entire system tipped when his beliefs changed.

So that is how I started my day today. I slept in late, spent a long time writing and felt something shift inside. It's a sunny day here. I hope it's sunny where you are too. Blessings.

Judy... I can TOTALLY sympathize with your recent state of mind...for me...TOO MANY to-do's... that my creativity felt stifled...

SO I put creativity aside and decided to concentrate on the nitty gritty of the paper work and the processes required to complete all it... then WHOMP... all of a sudden the fog begin to lift and I felt like painting... collaging... journaling again..

HAPPY to be back to creating...
AHhhh but alas... still some more paper work to do... BUT there is a LIGHT at the end of the tunnel and I am CHARGING for tunnel opening... FULL STEAM

I came on over via Dawn's blog.

I love this page. I love how you showed it in progress. The colors, the full and wonderful and not at all "dry." :p

I haven't written in awhile, fiction, that is, so I understand how you feel. I let the ache then urge build up inside me, and now I can't do anything but!
