Two things that stink.

One, migraines. Head pain, nausea, light sensitivity, and sound sensitivity are some of the symptoms I experience.

Two, grief. I didn’t walk through any darkened alleyways, but I did get attacked by grief. I’m in thousand-yard-stare mode.

As a result, today’s post is late, and will be posted by tomorrow. There will be an extra post this week to compensate.

I’m sorry, This isn’t supposed to happen. :(

Writing Prompt: Understanding

Kaleidoscope

(c) 2013 Windy Johansen

We all need understanding. We crave the warmth that understanding brings us. Love without judgement.

Can you remember a time when someone understood you and it made you brighter, if only for a few moments?

What does this inspire you to write? It might be rage that the person you understands has gone away. It might be elation that somebody gets it. (I’m not sure which one I’d choose, really. I’ve felt both ways.)

Trust you. Know that there is good in the world, and that it doesn’t go away just because we rage at it. Know too, that knowing your own truth, messy though it might be, is a very free place to be. Know that love can and will find you there.

Giving yourself this kind of understanding is very powerful, because you learn to love you while carrying on through caustic locales. Then you can be that carrier of saving grace for others, as well as yourself.

What would you like to say?

<3 I'll listen.

And then, suddenly, Godzilla.

Godzilla ate my post. Really.

Well, okay. No he (she?) didn’t. (I really should know.)

To make a long story non-existent, life ate my post.

I’ll be back Monday with a writing prompt, and adjust the Friday schedule so you get the post you were promised.

Love you. <3

There’s Space Everywhere

I see it, I see it
a landscape

at once cold
and beautiful
it’s open
there’s space everywhere

I see it, I see it

little droplets of ice fall
not snowflakes
not stars
frozen earth

little wonders of life
don’t stare
don’t close
frozen earth
