And welcome to my updated website! Thanks for getting this far into it...I hope that if you're here now, you might return once in a while for a few random thoughts on things like: creativity, writer's block, going to poetry readings outside a Tesla store, and you know...the fuzzy-slippers glamour of freelancing.
For today, I'll keep it quick as I put the finishing touches on my DIY website and leave you with a quote from the highly entertaining Martha Beck whose workshop I just attended in August. This particular gem from her article "Stop Doubting and Start Writing" spoke to me:
"Writing, you see, is equal-opportunity magic. It loves us all. I believe with all my heart that if we use writing in this way, we can fix almost everything we have broken. I know it’s an audacious belief, but what the hell, writing is audacious magic. One clear thought, powerfully phrased, can literally change history. You don’t have to create a book. Your message can be on a blog, or a tweet, or a damn T-shirt. But you have to write it."
So thanks for the words of encouragement, Martha. We'll see where this kind of writing leads.
