I have written my 10-minute timed writing for the writing group. To continue a blog of the new story, I will begin collecting the inspirational quotes from any source – Bible, poetry, essays, philosopher – that mean something to me.
I want to counterbalance the focus of news on bad things, things that make their audience watch.
First, appropriately, I remember “In the beginning…” But weirdly I was thinking “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
But I didn’t remember that that sentence was the beginning of John. Hah! Never associated that with my dad, John, before. “And that was the beginning of John.”
I am so involved with looking at the lives of these ancestors that it is a challenge to both honor their lives and stories and to be here now.
Also, it feels as if I need to play in the world which is now a world of speed, social media, zoom zoom zoom! But I want mostly to sit quietly in the woods, rather in a meadow near the woods, warm, comfy, by a meandering stream.
