The Space to Write

Quietness surrounds me; concentration pulls my thoughts together;  vision focuses to my notes and my laptop.  My body sits still on the bar stool, while my fingers do a tireless dance on the keyboard spewing words on the screen.  And,  the next thing I know, I’ve written something.  I read, re-read, edit, edit again, and once I enjoy my writing, I post!

Before I post:  I grab my space in time to write, because time keeps fleeting fast .  I write in between my responsibilities.  A habit that’s becoming addictive.  I miss it if I don’t do it.

My iPhone is always with me, wherever I go.  (I might as well embed it into my skin.)  In the house, I keep my laptop right on the kitchen counter-top, few steps away from the stove.  I have a drawer near the stove-top that carries my hand-writing supplies.  Paper, pen, pencils, and Sharpies.  I frequently jot down ideas on paper.  Later when I type, I refer to my paper notes.  A good system for me.

When I sit down to write, I shift my mental gear.  I close all other thoughts and get focused on my notes, and start to elaborate on each point as I type on my blog.

Enjoy your writing!

Things I’ve Learned — (and Can Learn More)

“Compiling a list is a way to let loose, unlock ideas, and free your mind,” wrote Cheri and the WordPress.com Team from Writing 101, assignment #2.

I agree 100%!  So, below is my list.

Things i’ve learned:

Here’s my list of things I’ve learned.  I hope I find many who are on this path.

  1. We are created beautifully by Someone.  (From an ant to us humans)
  2. Let’s not patronize our Creator.  (Religions often tend to)
  3. Let spirituality prevail, not religion.  (Religion is an inconvenience)
  4. Follow simple rules of life. (Do what’s right each day to help Earth & what’s on it)
  5. Co-exist!  (Then peace is attainable)
  6. Respect your body.  (It’s a gift)
  7. You are what you eat!  (Eat with awareness)
  8. Respect each other’s differences.  (You will be happier)
  9. We are mortal – we will die.  (Let’s be nice to each other)
  10. Learn, in this life, to be kind and patient.  (Our end here maybe a beginning elsewhere)
