These words are from The Wild Pomegranate, a beautifully and poignantly written blog by a friend of mine:
I find that I’ve been missing my morning writing time. I’ve missed being in that quiet space in the morning, that creative womb of silence, where inspiration naturally blooms to the sound of a waking world and the clicking of fingernails on a keyboard.
My new moon intention is about finding my creative voice again, which has taken a back seat in recent months. And, because it’s all about me, it’s all for perfectly selfish reasons, of course. *laughing* But in all sincerity, I miss the community I once enjoyed in Blogland – the daily (or almost so) interaction with like minded people who bring so much joy, inspiration, companionship and “I get you!” into my life. Ah, there we have it – the “real” issue, I guess: I miss being around people that “Get” me.
I’ve missed you! You who find that what I have to say has value and import, who understand that I am a multidimensional human spirit who will not be squeezed into a box or a label or a “position”, and who cheer me on through good times and bad.
And I’ve missed sharing what’s on my heart and in my mind. I’ve missed the words themselves.”
As I read these final notes of today’s post, I could relate completely in many ways. First, the inner joy of writing words. If ever I were to have a love affair it would be with words. Writing them, typing them, watching them appear on the paper or the screen in front of me. It’s mesmerizing almost…with a sense of magic happening before my very eyes. At times I’m in disbelief that I was blessed to create something so eloquent and dare I say, elegant. In truth, there occasions where I’m in awe of the words that flow so easily. It’s a gift..I’m fully aware of this…and equally as in love with it.
What also struck me in Gracie’s sentiment was a reflection of how I’ve been feeling while away from my writing these last several days. A longing, a desire to connect here, to share with this community that exists in my heart and soul, if not in my everyday “real” life. Your presence and willingness to be here in this place with me has become a part of my inner self. We are Universally connected, in a way that sometimes “real” life can’t offer us. Some of you live across the ocean. It’s unimaginable that we can so naturally, so authentically come together as One in this place. And again, I find myself in awe. Of you, of us, of this Divine thread weaving itself into our lives and our souls.
So thank you. For allowing me to be myself, to share with you so purely and as Gracie so beautifully stated–for “getting me.” You warm my heart, you speak to my soul. And today my loved ones….your loving presence is the whisper I feel from within….xoxo
