A journey of a thousand miles…

Once, I was a writer. But writers write, and I haven’t been doing a whole lot of that lately. Certainly not the put-words-on-the-page-for-the-heck-of-it type of writing.  I could list a thousand reasons why I haven’t, but none of them would be the for really and truly reason.

I’m not even sure what the for really and truly reason is. Yet.

But I know enough to know that I don’t need to know the reasons why in order to change it. I miss that type of writing. So here I am, brand new digs, giving it one more go. And if this go goes nowhere, well then, I’ll give it one more go after that. And another one after that one, if that’s what it takes.

So. No promises, not even to myself, except for one – I will try. Because somewhere inside of me is the writer that I once was, and I’m ready – I think – to work on dragging her, inch by inch and word by word, back into the light of day.  Because writers write.

I took that picture up there. This writer is not a photographer, but the image is one that brings me comfort, nonetheless. It’s so calm, and quiet; waiting at the top of that particular hill is more calm and quiet, coupled with hope and inspiration and joy. See, I know where that path came from, and where it’s going. It’s a path I’ve walked many times, sometimes alone, sometimes side by side with people I love and care about. Sometimes, I’ve raced down that path, filled with anticipation about what comes next. Sometimes, i’ve meandered quietly, not entirely certain about what’s ahead, but knowing with absolute certainty that it’s going to be good, whatever it turns out to be.

Not once have I ever walked that particular path in fear or apprehension. And that’s why I’ve put it up there, to remind me that it is possible to put one foot in front of the other, and get to the top of the hill.  And to stop and admire the beauty of the path along the way.
