Letting go, an appropriate theme for free-writing!
I’ve spent the last week setting my 17 year old twins up in their first independent rental. I was their age when I moved out for the first time. It was such an exciting, scary time. There are times in life when we have to let go…of something or someone, an issue, an argument, an item, an opportunity. What have you let go of? Was it sad, painful, weird, liberating?
Just when you thought you found the perfect expression to capture a feeling…along comes another to flatten and contradict.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Out of sight out of mind
What rings up contradictory for you?
What did you say or do that you wish you could erase or blackout? Or have you ever blacked out? Time for a little fun and experimentation with some blackout poetry. Repurpose an old book page, strategically select the words that work for you, blackout all the rest. Check out this link for more insight.
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
