“Perhaps the most beautiful work you can do today is to begin to accept your creative inheritance from God and learn to become yourself in the presence of others, moving into the world as the person you fully are no matter where you are, who you’re with, or what’s gone wrong.”
i didn’t intend to take a blogging break this summer. and i didn’t see the light posts and potholes along the path of moving into the world in this way that Emily describes. but light posts and potholes they were, and as i found myself unexpectedly spending a week without internet or phone but with my laptop and time, i began to see it. i began to see the unexpected journey i was being taken on and the threads of freedom that would weave themselves into that ‘beautiful work of accepting my creative inheritance and learning to become myself in the presence of others.’
and so at hand is the challenging task of putting it all into words that make sense for a reader who is not me, written by a writer who is me. i’ll be back here with those words on Monday, August 4th. till then, may the journey you find yourself on be full of unexpected joys along the way.
