As we settle deeper into isolation I am keeping the focus as relaxed, positive and creative as possible.
Even so, I’m hit regularly by emotional waves of frustration and sadness that tumble me about, try to pull me under and leave me gasping for air.
Writing is one of the many ways I push through.
Behind the playful creative writing prompts of Amotissé,(find them here) I am journaling, participating in creative challenges, setting myself tasks, making new rituals and what I hope will be memorable moments.
I am doing things I wouldn’t have done if it weren’t for being in isolation right now, valuable things.
This time is an unexpected, involuntary and strange gift.
I feel happy to share with you whatever peculiar and wondrous fruits we may find along the way.
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.
