10 Day Meme: DAY Nine – Two Images That Describe Your Life Right Now & Why
1) Worry – I liked this image of a Valkyrie. Traditionally, they would decide who would die in battle. With my cousin in the fight of her life, I think that every member of her family and every friend would welcome the opportunity to take up the sword and beat back Death. This is how I would like be, a strong, graceful warrior, protecting my family from the everyday battles and warding off the hurts that come their way. If I could take on their worries and let them rest, even for a while…
2) Discovery – Through reverb10, and now through the online community, I am discovering a whole world of authors, artists, inspiration, and most importantly, friends. There’s a great deal of introspection in what I’ve been writing so far…apparently, forty-two years worth of pent-up words. I have managed to stay busy, with jobs, with children, with love and with loss. I poured myself into each of these things, without looking inward or allowing myself any sort of creative outlet. I’ve always relished the written word, paintings, drawings, music. I just never expected to try my hand seriously at any of them. I have friends that are artists, musicians, poets. Intimidation and the belief that there would always someone who could do it better would stay my hands. Suddenly, I feel like I’m standing in the waves on the shore, ready to strive for deeper waters. By reaching into the past, I am loosening the ties that have bound my hands, my words, and my heart. Better still, I am learning to say the words that I need to say to people. I can finally tell my family and my friends that I love them, and how grateful I am to have them in my life.
(I think I just figured out my April reverb prompt.)
