How do I start again after falling off the wagon? I don’t want to give up at this point. I’m in my ninth month (of blogging) and I can’t throw in the towel now. In April I focused on fostering a healthy environment. It was more about doing than reflecting and writing. So, as busy as I was, I began to skip days of writing, and then days became weeks.
My focus for the merry month of May is to reflect each day on a scripture passage or a bit of wisdom from various sources. I want to be open and allow myself to be surprised. I can find wisdom on a bumper sticker or a t-shirt: “Life is Good.”
If I really embraced the truth in those words so casually worn on a t-shirt, how would my life change? I guess that’s my purpose in reflecting on wisdom sayings this month, to have them permeate my soul and change me for the better.
Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon.
Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
