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

Well, I'm quite sorry, but I can't pick just one. I'd love to go just about anywhere. However, if I HAD to choose one, it would be...

  1. Now you made me want the beach!! ;)

    I think you'd really like the beach, its so pretty in the morning, especially taking walks. But remember that when you go you should bring a jacket, because the mornings are cold by the water! :)

  2. Ooh, fun Sky dear!! :)

    How sad is this: I live in CA, yet have never been to Disneyland. :P

    Love and Hugs, NW sister,
