Where do ideas come from?
Do I already have an idea in my mind? Do I like that idea? Or is it my “I’ll settle for that idea if a burst of inspiration does not hit me before it’s time to push the publish button.
Today felt different.
I didn’t have an idea in mind. (I had many ideas circulating but no ONE idea.) I didn’t have a draft written before the “call to slicers” was posted. So the inspiration came from sleeping on/with this idea on my mind.
Writing . . .
And therefore, being most present.
Examples from this summer include these two volunteers in my sister’s garden. . .
And then blooming
Volunteering to create
In unexpected spaces.
Today a petunia and a sunflower are the same.
When have you been most present? How do you KNOW? What is your plan to be MORE present?
