Capturing life in words…

About Me:

A Christian, Mother, Licensed Social Worker and Writer in the Great Lakes area. Writing for the thrill of the process…

Despite graduate school’s attempt to create an aversion to books in general, my love for writing and literature is intact, yet barely tapped. Thrilled to finally have a breath of time to live mindfully, I want to savor the moments as I journal, blog, explore my life. For me, writing is more than documenting moments — it is a powerful tool which sheds light, heals wounds, pokes in corners over-looked, engages others, gives birth and for me, is as essential as breath

I do believe writers, lovers of the written word and others who operate in the shades of gray of life, are of the same tapestry: Deep thinkers who observe, watch, learn, discuss and possess an inherent ability to see below the surface.  I feel certain things are a calling of sorts– writing, ministry, social work, artists, helping professions and such.

So “LifeWritePray”is grabbing words to share my reflections on life’s journey… and develop greater understanding & insights.  I am a survivor, like you, and desire to pull back the wrapping on life, and see what’s there under the good, bad and unexplored.

Thank you for reading and, as appropriate, your helpful comments.

Traveling Mercies to You,

    I was once a workaholic. It cost me my first marriage. Now I work without stress and with regular hours. I even have spare time at my job to write. I enjoyed your descriptions of how your life was before your accident — Whack-A-Mole.

      Nice to hear back from you, thank you. I commiserate with you regarding the futility of giving one’s life to a job. I am taking a Sabbatical to re-evaluate my priorities and to live “mindfully”. (Translation: I’m avoiding the rat race so I can be fully present. I am focusing on living in the moment, writing, developing my spiritual life, and grieving losses I did not give time/attention to earlier in life.)

      I wanted to share something I exp’d in college. I lived just one day homeless. I had my clothes on my back and a trashbag (which is good b/c it was 33 degrees out and rain/sleeting). It was the most humbling experience I have ever had…. I did this in Indianapolis Indiana in January some years ago. I remember having to pee and not being able to find an establishment willing to let me pee… (after being in drizzle for 12 hours, you look quickly homeless). It was very eye-opening and heart-breaking. A snapshot into the tragedy of our homeless.)

    Well thank you!! I am very, very flattered. The process of writing has led to many wonderful things– such as friendships with warm comments. Ironically, I am at a loss for something witty and eloquent, as I am surprised and touched. So I shall say thank you, and know I would give you a huge hug if I were able. Bless you!!
