This is a transitional year for me on many levels. When I started journaling on a daily basis back in NYC, the time spent reflecting on paper allowed me to take a much needed good look at myself. When I moved to DC, after about a year, I discovered that daily writing no longer served a purpose however, my creative energy directed me to a larger journal where I recorded progress, thoughts, and pictures when the mood or circumstance arose. Electronic journaling took over at a time when I felt I needed discipline and also had an itch to explore something new. Posting provoked creativity on several levels including matching words with pictures or visa versa; finding different words to say the same thing; composing poems; and communicating with people when speaking directly to them was not working. Over time, the blog became an outlet to help me cope with dissatisfaction, a state of being that dissolved when I stepped out on purpose this past February.
During the summer, I experienced frequent writer’s block which is unusual for me when it comes to penning the eclectic eye. I didn’t fully understand until August; the desire to return to physically writing my thoughts down on paper consumed me, let me know that it was time to lessen the note taking on my phone as well as typing the blog. I don’t argue with transition, I move with the flow.
After today, I will no longer post every Sunday and Wednesday as I’ve done for exactly seven years. While I totally enjoyed sharing these twice a week stops on my journey with you, I look forward to where my writing takes me next. I’m not sure when post #734 will appear, so until then, thanks for stopping by, check back periodically and continue to…
