It’s day 6 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge and, to quote Steve Miller, “Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping, into the future.”
There has been so much happening in my life this week and this month, that my head is spinning, my nerves are humming, and I can’t keep up with my thoughts and inspirations, much less checking in and reading all the new blogs I’ve been discovering or continue to sample and discover more new blogs.
Because of this, I was at a loss and feeling the self-imposed pressure to get a post out into the blogosphere in order to meet the commitment and demands of the challenge. Conversely, I don’t want to write a post, just to write a post and meet some arbitrary quota for the sake of doing the thing. I want it to have significance and be relevant to me and my life, because if it isn’t, it shouldn’t be in this space that I have dedicated to my journey of recovery and discovery of self.
An angel appeared in the form of one of the new bloggers I “discovered” and started following through the UBC, Melissa Camara Wilkins ~ she has five kids, she drinks tea and she writes things down. There’s a “thing” she does called Six Word Fridays. The topic word for the month of July is, “Found.” She asks: “What have you found this week? What’s found you?”
Finding Myself After Losing My Mind
Exploring dark territory, new revelations abound
That which was taken and lost
Hidden, dormant: sought to be found
Following the crumbs and clues left
By a younger, lost, innocent mind.
