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

The End of All Things

I got a Tumblr.

Yes, you can blame Georgie Penn for this. No, actually, maybe you should blame Fin. They both got me started... and I am hooked.
That feeling when your best friend’s best friend convinces her to try out Tumblr, and therefore, you jump on the bandwagon and get that gut feeling that you like it. Yeah… {via}
When I was going to sign up, I couldn't come up with anything. Then this quote entered my mind...
"I’m glad you’re here with me, Sam… here, at the end of all things."
-Frodo Baggins

Thus, my Tumblr blog was titled, The End of All Things.

At first it was named that on a whim. Then, I got to thinking. Isn't it really profound? I love random bursts of profundity. That's where the name for this blog came from, and I love it still to this day, 5 years later. I seriously think God names my blogs for me. ;)
My tumblr blog is called The End of All Things. Yes, I know… it’s morbid. When I was naming my tumblr blog, this quote popped into my head as random as could be…

“I’m glad you’re here with me, Sam… here, at the end of all things.”
-Frodo Baggins

It seems really morbid. Until I got to thinking… the end of all things. Frodo says they’re at the end, but they’re not really. After that, they go on to live happy lives. So it’s not the end.

It’s only the beginning.

And if hobbits find the end of all things, can’t we? {via}
And with that, I leave you with a relevant post, also from my tumblr, regarding a certain Mr. Gavin Gray.

Dear Gavin Gray,

First off, I love how you’re turning out. You’re an awesome character and you totally rock. I can’t believe you even came from my own brain. Which brings up a question… did you really come from my brain? If not, I must ask, because I’ve been wondering…

Where the heck did you come from??

  1. YAY for Tumblr! For once Fin managed to get something right. ;)

  2. Oh sheesh. How incredibly supportive you are!

  3. Hahaha! I love the letter to Gavin. :)

  4. Awesome title! Love the letter to Gavin Gray.

  5. WAIT, this doesn't mean you are going to stop posting on your REAL blogs, does it? Well, it really is the end of all things. **sobs**

    Just kidding. Anyway, have fun with it!

  6. Yay, great name choice, Sky! I love LOTR references. ;) Have fun with "The End of All Things"!

    Out of curiosity - does this mean you're leaving Blogger? And if so, will you still host Beautiful People here, or on Tumblr?

    PS I agree with everyone... your letter to Gavin Gray is fantastic. ;)
