One way I want to become a better writer is

One way I want to become a better writer is, and I am ready to create time every day for writing. I am a flowing fountain, like a spring bubbling up from out of the ground, endlessly offering herself to us.  She pours herself out onto the ground and the water soaks in and in and in and eventually a trickle forms into a river-let and a creek and sometimes a whaling river comes down the mountainside.  Some may drink or none may partake of her beauty, it matters not whether others are nourished or delighted. She keeps on being herself, doing her thing, and allowing herself to be shared, come what may without attachment. I know I too am like that spring, ever flowing with words, which long to be poured out upon the page.  I feel tight and full and over full when I do not allow time for them to pour out and dance and slide and slip and drip themselves into phrases and sentences across the page breathing their life into my life.  My breathing life into life itself with every word I share with myself, whether or not others read. For in the grand scheme, my words become real the moment I release them from the prison of me.  The moment I say OK they are here, I will let them out to play today.  We are all connected and so every word I release onto the page changes my day and everyone’s day, like the streams flowing through our lives.  While I am blessed by these actions, I bless the world as well and we are never the same, because I came to the page and shared.

    I love your imagery. Especially ” I feel tight and full and over full when I do not allow time for them to pour out and dance and slide and slip and drip themselves into phrases and sentences” since this is exactly how I feel on days when I can’t get to the page and let all my fears and desires get out. As I told Julie, you don’t want to be around me if I have been away from my journal and writing for too many days.
    Thanks for sharing.
