I journal and do morning stream of consciousness exercises, and
I’m again participating in Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
I write to a timer, 15-20 minutes, no editing except spelling, and of course I add my art!
You can do it too!
The Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ground.”
I have no time really. Seriously. On a damn deadline like you can’t believe.
And trying to walk though a class on a creative process to boot..
But when I heard this week’s word a few minutes ago, it struck me as I am struggling to understand how I could have been so very wrong about someone close to me.
There is a spiritual phrase, but also a practical phrase, their “ground of being.”
It is a bit bigger than intention, though that is certainly in there somewhere.
It is the essence of where you are coming from, where your heart is,
how you operate in the world… and I always thought that this one person had a
good ground of being when it came to me at least.
I was wrong. Very very wrong. And I am reeling from it,
trying to focus many scenes from my life, stories told to me, all through these new lenses. Rug pulled out from under me…
What is true and what isn’t…
Who might have I wronged while believing in this person,
who was so close to me and
whose ground of being was actually detrimental to my well-being.
Anyhow, as I am busy and beading and painting and cooking and sleeping and showering
I am looking at the world through these lenses… and trying to figure this all out.
Thank god/dess I have Mitchell by my side.
For the rules, go to Linda’s blog; feel free to join the fun!
