In order to be open to creativity, one must have the capacity for constructive use of solitude. One must overcome the fear of being alone. Rollo May
For most of the last two weeks after writing morning pages, I take a walk in the park that reminds me of Girl Scout camp, my favorite childhood setting. You know, that place they tell you to imagine when you meditate.
Sounds like a great way to start the day.
It is. And then before it gets too hot I work in the garden. Today I picked two more tomatoes and a bowl full of beans. The corn is almost ready.
And during the day I’ve been reading. A lot.
OK. I’m wondering why you are telling me all of this when you know I already know it.
Because there’s something else.
Spit it out.
Well five days ago I started taking the quote from my morning post and watching how it plays through my day, knowing that at the end of the day I will write a ten minute free write in response to it. With this focus all my little routines become so much richer… hell, my whole day feels so much richer. It’s like I’m being me and watching what it means to be me.
So, wise one, how do I share this with others?
Looks like you just did.
