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

Wild Mind Part 2

wild mindI began working my way through Natalie Goldberg’s Wild Mind several weeks ago. I’m reading the chapters and doing the exercises. Opening to wild mind.

Today the exercise asks me to read with interest and compassion what I have written for the last 10 days’ worth of writing. I have one notebook containing morning pages, one of classroom stories as observer, teacher and student, and a third of observations and ideas on everything else.

I am to underline sentences that stand out and put parentheses around sections I like, then develop these writings further by using them as timed writing topics.

What am I expecting? What will I learn? Where will it take me? How will I know unless I just do it?
