I was sharing with a friend the other day that I really want to start writing again. I miss it. The problem I am facing is that there is just too much on my mind that I want to say. I know that the simple solution is to just break it down into bite size chunks, but then where do I start?
I remember in college when I had to write essays I would pace back and forth with pen and paper in hand until the words came. They always did.
Today, I made the decision to just start. To put down words and see where it goes. I hope it doesn’t mean that I write today and then leave the words behind again for months like I have been doing.
Part of it is that the world today is so overwhelming. It is like an emotional rollercoaster. Waiting for a hurricane and now watching the devastating effects of Irma and Maria unfold. The earthquake in Mexico, seeing mothers crying for their children in a school that has collapsed. Russia. Healthcare.
So I will use my words to pray, to comfort, to be kind. I will also use them to fight for what I believe in. To stand up for others.
And I hope I can put the words in writing.
Done rambling for now…
