Day 11 In Search of my Blogging Identity “The Vision”

We might see a glimpse through a dream or an epiphany, but often the promises of God form over a lifetime. Moving forward in darkness of sight…one step at time… is the usual.                                      I do not know what my future holds, but I do know I have never been happier than since I started writing …

Day 10 In Search of my Blogging Identity-“Awakenings”

"Life is like a series of awakenings from birth until death."            Contemplation is essential for the human soul and yet modern living does not easily lend to this practice. The temptation to stay continually "connected" leaves little time for reflection. Without reflection, one activity blurs into another.        Awakening... sudden awareness, recognition, or realization …

Day 6 “In Search of my Blogging Identity”-Brain Switch

        Something magical happened after my morning writing. I became entranced with creating a header for my new creativity blog. The potential of Photoshop CS3 fascinated. I found logic giving way to artistic impulse; much the same way as when floral designing.       I go into this "creative zone," which is extremely relaxing. Perhaps it is a switch from the left …

Day 5 “In Search of my Blogging Identity”- Bubbling up and over!

  I am cloistering due to a cold; yet, joy and creativity bubble up like a fountain. My daughter finally called from Seoul, Korea.  Her initial delayed flight was not scheduled to leave for a few more days so she had to pay for another one in order to return to work. Apparently, this was one of the worst storms …

Day 4: Lessons of the Bamboo

I love the early morning when stillness reigns. A heart so full of happiness temporarily sliced with worry for one's offspring does not even a robber make. For the early morning is God's domain. He whispers through dreams filling mind with lofty thoughts of longings coming true. Awakening to write them down is also His …

A Time for Taking Inventory

As I look towards the New Year and coming decade, the desire to take a personal inventory prevails. My burgeoning artistic projects and passions have become unruly. Like a plant that outgrows pot and climbs up and over the garden wall; runners stretch out in all directions while roots dig deeply firmly into my life's soil. So much to …

Selah

Off to the editor! There are solemn moments in a writer's life requiring Selah, pause and calmly think of this. These moments request a photograph in order to preserve for remembering. Yesterday culminated in such an amazing moment. After years of gathering life experiences into a loose leaf manuscript, I ceremoniously wrapped the bundle with …

The Scary Stuff!

           There is no race with writing. We plant ourselves beside the fountain of God's inspiration and drink deeply. Whatever flows from head and heart through pen is enough for the day.             At least this is what I tell myself when feeling poetic, inspired, and scared. To be perfectly honest, I procrastinate like the …
