I have kept journals for almost 50 years now — every time I move, I question whether or not to keep the 17 bankers boxes that house these archives of mine! I’ve read almost every book on journal writing that has been available since 1975. I’ve also written copiously in most of the jobs I’ve had.
But it’s only been in the past few years that I’ve been able to write from my own heart and soul to others’ hearts and souls. I had put “Being a Writer” on such a high pedestal that I thought I’d never be someone able to encourage or inform others. There were so many books already — who needed another one?
With a little help from my friends, I’m pulling down that pedestal and realize that I already am a writer and that I already do encourage and inform others in my own ways. Here are some of the ways I do so:
My blog is usually cross-posted to my Facebook account and archived here. Ten years of my previous blog, Mysteries Unfolding, can be accessed through the "Archived Blog" button at the top of this page.
I have authored two books, Wildflower Seeds: The Beauties of a Reflective Life, a manifesto including more than 100 activities to explore your Depth Dimensions on why taking the time for a reflective life makes us more effective in creating a world that can be a welcoming home to all of us (Coming Soon), and Open to Mystery: Paintings and Poetry, a collection of over 20 poems with the paintings that arose as the poetry was written. Originally published in a hand bound edition, Open to Mystery will soon be available for purchase.
