on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

Once upon a time, there was a blog called Further Up and Further In.

But it was not the Further Up and Further In that you are thinking of. No... it was a completely different blog, set in a completely different place in time. This blog was run by Narniagirl, a girl you may not think you know but whom you actually do.

That Further Up and Further In (FUFI) blog came into the world in 2006, and was faithfully upkept until the land that the blog lived in was destroyed, making way for new things. Narniagirl was destitute. She searched for a place to go, and found a place where many of her friends had relocated. She set up housekeeping there in a small private cottage, and then opened up to the world, naming it FUFI just like her old home. Narniagirl herself however wanted a somewhat fresh start, so she renamed herself. Her name is now Sky, and she is typing this post at this very moment.

Although Narniagirl and the old FUFI hold fond memories, Sky is now moving on to a future full of bright hopes and many dreams. Narniagirl is a thing of the past, and she will be missed. But do not think of her with sorrow. Think of her as a wonderful memory that will live on... in the form of Sky. We will miss Narniagirl, but she is not dead! She is still around, just by a different name. (Me, people, that would be me.)

So, with that thought, R.I.P., Narniagirl.
