If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Six days into the new year. The day of Epiphany, the manifestation of Christ to the gentiles, when the kings arrived at the manger.

Last night seven writers convene for Melissa’s annual Writing Circle.  There is plenty of food, wine, good conversation…and writing activities celebrating our fascination with words.

Melissa passes out copies of “If I Knew Then What I Know Now” by Amy Oscar from http://tiferetjournal.com/2011/12/19/knew/.  She asks us to consider our goals, our mission statement, what the Muse is telling us this year.

One writer shares a statement from Amy’s article.

I would devote WAY fewer journal pages to planning and scheming and WAY more to free associating, dreaming and doodling–the kind of dreaming that leads, not to plans or short term goals but to vision.

Insight on this day of Epiphany.

  1. We are so in tune. Thank you for this.

  2. It sounds so inspiring, Laura. I wish I could have been there. One day I’ll hook up with you guys again!
