I haven’t been writing as much lately. It’s not that my creativity is stifled or that I have no ideas. My brain never seems to turn off and I am constantly snapping mental photographs and observing the interactions all around me. I write in my mind.
But lately I haven’t had the heart to commit most of my thoughts to paper. I know too many people who are hurting right now, and I hurt alongside them. Like my brain, I can’t simply “turn it off”. Not only that, but I find my own losses rising to the surface, and I recognize that sometimes it is better to feel than to simply set it aside until a better time comes along. There is never a “better time”.
I had hoped to finish June’s 365 challenge…in June! However, better late than never? You can click on the photos to see the quotes. Happy Weekend!
