so enormously special.
is my passion? How
can I spark
fuels the energy to keep going.
In moments of passion,
my heart thrives… reflects… adjusts….
In the moments when the ordinary becomes spectacular,
my heart soars.
How can I keep
the passion going?
When I’m tired,
am I passionate? Does
my passion weary?
I must not!
Love Ruth’s post!

I love this quote:
Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers. — Isacc Asimov
Isn’t that what we do? We write and think and write and think. And then we think some more. I guess it is one reason why I like to use paper and pen. I can jot my thoughts and think, leaving the open page nearby as I go about my chores. On Sunday, my youngest did something that made me chuckle. I didn’t want to lose the memory, so I grabbed a pen from my purse and began writing on our bulletin. I was trying to capture the essence of the moment as quickly as I could.
Other times, like now, I stop and think. Palm under my chin, I reread and talk to myself. The computer awaits my tapping fingers to mold the words my audience will understand. With every tap, my fingers grasp my thinking.
What thinking are you doing through your fingers?
