How true...At some point I forced myself to write about "nothing" - have you tried??
Hmmm. Yes. You're quite right. It's lovely.
Natalie, Are you talking about stream of consciousness? I have a hard time w/ that. Thanks, Charli.
For me, writing can be painful, but usually, in the end it is quite healing for me. It kind of gets it all out so I can move on by letting go and/or seeking help. I love it.
Writing is definitely healing for me too. Did u know there is a such thing as poetry therapy? That would be intriguing to try.
Oh yes, wise words borne of experience. I remember those 'young' years in poetry writing, frankly with a dour grimace. But even then I was aware that I had to get all the raw stuff out and on paper before the fine-tuning/polishing could get under way. Like spring-cleaning the mind, the soul, the heart, all at the same time, making space, making way for clarity and creativity. ;) Thank God for progress, for maturity.
"spring-cleaning the mind, the soul, the heart, all at the same time, making space, making way for clarity and creativity." I like that. That is what writing does. "Thank God for progress, for maturity." Amen!
