Day 7--A Much Anticipated Message

I have so much gratitude for those who put into words the things that I feel but can't describe, and for those who share their gifts which are to be shared, as they are gifts from God.

Elizabeth Gilbert is amazing. Every woman should read Eat, Pray, Love. I was moved during my entire reading of that book, and was so excited to find her in a conference sharing bits from her life as a writer and a creative spirit. The things she says shook me, and I feel more than ever that my mind associates with the very sort of people that she talks about. It's nice to hear someone say that the complex and often unneccesary mental exaustion that I put myself through as I wade through life in my mind, is the very essence of me. The trick is to find how to invite this part of myself in and embrace the journey.

Sometimes I feel...

~I over-analyze
~So much to say
~That I may be odd
~Self-pressure to do it perfect
~Not enough time to delve fully
Here's to all you creative spirits out there:


“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
