I have been attempting to write for over a month now, my last post to you being early January, where I acknowledged the anniversary of my writing for i-Spirit and of it’s coinciding with the anniversary of my dad’s passing. My dad has been a strong influence in my writing, as I’ve shared before, but he has stepped back these past weeks; stepped back to allow others to take the fore….
I have greatly missed our connection through my writing, as it is through writing that I discover more of myself. I have needed the past weeks to reconnect more strongly to my physical realities, and for those of you who have read my book, you will be able to appreciate in greater depth the following – I have been organizing the sale of my house. Yes, the sign is back up and the intent has been set. The next stage of my life is to begin and where it will take me I have yet to discover….
Another happening has been slowly emerging during this time – a time of loss and a time of gain. Some friends have chosen to no longer be a part of my life and old ones are resurfacing. Cycles of life. My old school chums and I are once again touching bases and another reunion is in the planning. We met last to celebrate 30 years since graduating from high school and now, we wish to try again, some 14 years later.
I have found that I am being taken back in time, to remind myself of who I was, to reincorporate parts of me left behind back then, to better understand decisions and directions taken, and to help better understand what has made me who I am today. Growth always requires times of reflection.
It is nice to feel my dad’s energies again as I write, we make a good team and we do have another book to write! First things first though….
