It’s been a minute since I’ve posted a new …post! Editing a three hundred- plus page novel is… many things all at once and one at a time. For me, it’s necessary to continually remind myself how far I’ve come not only in the process of creating this novel, but how far I’ve come in rewriting the parts of me that needed a ‘new script’. The book is coming along and I’m coming along right beside it.
I guess I chose this particular photo, me once more communing with the Sea, because it is one of my visual reminders to constantly seek out ways to return to stillness. I find when I approach doing anything from a place of stillness, the results are automatically enhanced because the stillness brings with it automatic ‘now-ness’. In other words- I stay present in the task, in the doing, in the being phase of things. From this place, I can easily find the simple joy in the most challenging of tasks.
Boats don’t rock when the passengers are still? The title floated right up out of me, right as rain.
If you find yourself in a boat full of holes, or one shaking itself to bits (metaphorically and hopefully not in any actual sense!), I suggest looking for a way to find your stillness, your center. You just might find yourself creating a solution you never imagined you could create!
