Happy Thanksgiving

I'm a part of the three week challenge that is based on the book "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron and this morning I thought it only right to use my morning pages to write about the many things I have to be thankful for. And happily, I do have many, many things to be grateful for.

I was hesitant to start this challenge because I am not in the habit of verbalizing/writing all my thoughts and feelings in a journal. And stream of conscious writing is not an easy task for me because my mind is faster than hand. I should probably audio record my thoughts but I know I won't do that either. Or record the thoughts using voice to text translation.....see what I mean? My ideas are all over the place. By the time I finish writing one thought I have already moved on to two others.

I remember once visiting with two friends, one was a boyfriend and one was my best friend at the time, a female. As we all talked my boyfriend stopped us and said "How did you two get to this place in the conversation when we started here? I can't keep up with you guys." I guess that's why she was my best friend because she could keep up. Unfortunately, I lost touch with my friend, Cindy Perry, when I got married and moved to California. Cindy, if you are out there somewhere, I miss our rambling conversations.

I want to wish everyone an abundance of great food, whether you eat Turkey or are a vegetarian, and that you have a plethora of things to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with friends, family, and fun!

    I used to struggle with the Morning Pages, because they seemed so slow compared to how fast my brain worked. Give it a while. You may be pleasantly surprised! I have learned to slow down my stream of consciousness to a more reasonable pace to match my writing speed ... and realized that a slow pace can be a wonderful luxury. There's breathing room. Room to really feel and not just think. Good luck!

  3. Linda, it is interesting to see how you are going with this new challenge. Hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving. I have an award for you on my blog.
