Yesterday we wrote together. Just four of us in a strip-lit community centre classroom. The white glare, the grey furniture, the uncomfortable chairs. None of us would make you turn your head on the street. Yet it was amazing! At a certain point, I took off my cardigan. I was getting all flushed because of our group thing.
After, I was exhausted, my mind reeling. This is it! What I want to do! This works! Exclamation points after every sentence, the enthusiasm filling my mind with ideas at a disturbingly explosive rate.
Of course, today worry starts taking its usual place, telling me: no room for fantasies!
But the thought of yesterday - we can all have our cake and eat it, too! - the hope, the glory in the glimmer of a future for myself in enabling people to team up in more powerful and satisfying ways - WOW.
A glimpse of treasure. I shall aim to let life's events strengthen my treasure hunt - let each surprise development reveal its next step, shovel up the next spadeful of fertile earth, allow me to sow my seeds of love, faith, belief.
