reading through archives
so much of my life
For WITNESS – When I sit here and write, I am comfortable and I write from my heart. I am aware of the many who read and may read in the future. The readers of my blogs span several decades, in terms of their ages. I am grateful. There are so many ways to grow here.
When I am writing, I am usually in a small room by myself. Often as I pray the Psalms, and look at the nature outside the window, I am inspired. I read many books and journals. It is also true that when I rest when tired, that inspiration renews. I am encouraged by many people and so grateful.
I am older now and feel my professional goals are complete. We hope to create a few large print books with my poems and our photos. Quiet Christmas Poetry is an example – my WordPress site has the content for free, and a large print chapbook benefits a poetry journal, Time Of Singing. My career was in special education and I helped with my mother’s care. I have spent a lot of time in nursing homes as a daughter and volunteer. When I was younger, I had a chronic illness; so have some sense of the content that may work in different situations. Blogging helped to renew my creativity.
