You Said It

Yes, Wise Web Woman
you said it.

I have thought it

now I am repeating your words.

~~~I must stay drunk on writing
so that reality does not destroy me ~~~

Thank you for allowing me :)

At the moment I do believe
I write more then my daughter
who is a writer and editor....

Yes
at this time
writing
 is
a helpful part of her mama's
survival tactic...

Health problems
please
go away....

Flowerlady, thank you so much.
Tabor, almost the first to visit when I started sharing 4 years ago - thank you so very much.
You have become very dear to me with your constant flow of comments that I always look for :)

Ah yes--we need to write--NEED TO. I am told in my grief support group to journal everyday. I have been keeping a journal since 1973--so I will continue. Sometimes nice to look back at an older journal and realize how far I have come--improved in my thinking even. Some journals are never to be read again as the pain is to much to remember. Keep writing--your words encouage me so!!!

Hope your day is going better. Your journal is always inspiring. Feel better thoughts coming your way.

Writing saves my life, banishes the doom into the corners where it belongs.

I do hope your health improves and you are restored.

Are you taking enough Vitamin D?

Sometimes writing is a burden we cannot shed.

So sorry you aren't feeling the best. I wish I could write out my feelings the same way you do. Too many family members read my words.

Beverly said...

Friko, Charlotte, Beverly, Mel and Sky, thank you.
May write a post on my experience with what helps the inflammation problem. Yes, my children read what I write (when they have time) and I have to be careful with sharing but am thinking of stopping being careful :)
Some the best in every area and some still have not arrived.
All of our lives are different....

I understand that feeling. Writing is healing. Keep on writing. I hope your health problems go away soon!

I do so relate. Writing, and, for me, art, are balms to my troubled soul. I am wishing peace and good health tonight. You are in my thoughts.
