Hit Pause

I thumb through Twitter, make lists, scan through photos, put the kettle on, check emails…

…evade the moment…

What am I afraid will happen if I just pause and be?

Maybe I should I try it and see…

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

      1. Thanks so much! You can either subscribe to my mailing list or, if you’d rather follow through WP so I show up in your reader, you can just do a search in the WP Reader, and it should come up. And of course, you can do both if you want to. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. …..like you, I take enormous comfort in life’s little routines, my inner healing drawing on all their normalcy and sameness, so that each day is shaped not by past violences but rather by the flow of prepping meals, dog walking, gardening, painting watercolours, all in the name of convincing myself that there’s peace in the present, if only I’ll just thrill over its stillness and absence of what was before so very disturbing. So, yes, give me another carrot to peel, or an email to reply to….or a lovely VJ posting! Lance
