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~

How We Grieve
  "When my Guru died in 1973, I assumed that because of the important part he played in my life, and the love I felt for him, I would be inundated with grief. Surprisingly, I was not. In time, I came to realize why. He and I were so well established in Soul love that, in the years since he l

Recovering Human Doing
Lounging in bed, surrounded by lots of pillows and snuggled under quilts as I am typing these words. It is a drowsy, dozy Sunday morning. The radio is playing easing into my day tunes.  My standard weekend fare begins with Sleepy Hollow on WXPN which is a Philly based member supported Public Radio

Profoundly Honest
"We must learn to be profoundly honest."-Panache Desai Wise words from one of the most engaging speakers I have had the pleasure of hearing. Back in 2011, I attended the Celebrate Your Life Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. I had not, at that point, known of the British born teacher who exudes a s

Thriving Artist
Last night, I attended a holiday gathering for a group of talented artists, writers, publishers, radio hosts, producers, as well as PR and marketing folks. Needless to say, I was in my idea of heaven. The Center City Philadelphia Restaurant where it was held is called Bliss. What a perfect place for
