Something Worth Writing

 

 

I saw this meme while perusing Facebook this morning and was puzzled by the question that accompanied it:  “Which would you rather do?” The obvious answer was “Both.”   In my mind, the second informs the first. Most of what I have written about over the past 25 years has come from my direct experience or witnessing those of others. Like most wordsmiths, I am a keen observer of what is going on around me; an anthropologist of sorts. Add to it, the career path I had chosen as a therapist, and you have a winning combination.

One of the occupational hazards of such a calling, is that quite often, I find myself in the midst of enjoying a moment, or bemoaning one and then thinking “How can I translate this so that readers can get value from it?” and further “How can I use it as  teaching tool for clients and students?” I am finding that I may have ADD, since I am so easily distracted and pulled away from the present, and so, I beckon myself back to the here and now.

In the past few months, my articles for this and other venues who welcome my musings and mental meanderings, have been fed by the death of a friend by suicide, the wedding of two beautiful women who I was honored to marry, my bout with shingles, the challenges of my nearly 12 year marriage and the growth that has taken place since being widowed 15 years ago, raising a boy child to manhood as a single mom, becoming a ‘hugmobster’; organizing a Valentines’ Day weekend FREE hugs flash mob, addiction/recovery, surrender, attracting abundance and living the life of my dreams and desires.

As I enter into this day, I welcome the writing prompts that will nourish the next round~

When I Was A Boy
I have been following a thread on a group Facebook page  for The Good Men Project  that was prompted by a video I had posted that showed a young woman being harassed by two young men while she was walking home from school. What happens next is conversation stirring.  One by one, other men step u

Life Is Like A Box of Chocolates
Photo credit:  Alex Lowy   I am open to miracles wherever they appear. Sometimes they show up in the form of a man with a buzz cut, decked out  in a white suit and sneakers, toting a well worn suitcase, plastered with all kinds of stickers as he meandered around the grounds of Wiggins P

Foolish Notion
    Lately I have been rolling through my mind thoughts about origin of violence in the world. I saw a video recently in which Whoopie Goldberg was explaining a statement she had made that it was okay for a man to hit a woman back if she hits him first. If she didn't want to be h

All of It
  Another one of those wee hours wake-ups when life beckons me to the keyboard to type what I may not be able to experience emotionally. I came upon the words of Panache Desai,  author and spiritual teacher who I had the joy of hearing back in 2011 at the Celebrate Your Life Conference in P

Rocks Crumble
Had an insight today that had me laughing at the perfect absurdity while speaking with my friend Gail Lynne Goodwin from Inspire Me Today.  She had called to offer loving support with the roller coaster ride that has been my life of late,  and we were musing about being adult orphans since both se
