“Move from within.

Don’t move the way fear wants you to.

Begin a foolish project.

Noah did.” 

The other day, I woke up with the above poem running through my mind. It was one I had printed out and kept in front of me when working on my Master’s Thesis many years ago.

While the issue wasn’t really one of comparing the completion of my thesis to the building of an ark, it did give me comfort to imagine that even the seemingly impossible could be possible.  It helped me persevere, to a successful completion of the thesis.

What “foolish” project have you set aside, out of a wavering faith or trust in yourself?   Chasing after a certainty is easy.  It takes courage to actualize a dream, to step onto the path of uncertainty and to keep walking.

    Dear Kathleen,
    Poetry in motion, both as a practical support and another creative venture. Enjoyed reading it in its own value, and also is aligned with me doing more of my writing in small steps… with increasing commitment to do more along with other health projects.

    This is first day of using my email, it was down for three days as we finally found the issue today; both a needed pause and also an empty spot-removing dualities and watching the flow of opposites.

    It seems to be a time of a sojourner truth and taking journeys from inside out to connection to joy of writing.

    Hope your trip to Egypt was all I can imagine it was …such a magical place in many ways and an eternal imprint in my life. Sending lots of love, blessings, and joy. Sharada

      Thanks much for your response and support.

      I’m glad to read that you will be doing more writing. It will be good to have your voice and thoughts out in the world. I’m happy to meet to share our writing if you like.

      Wishing you well,

    Kathleen, this topic is currently resonant. Silencing the inner critic posturing in perpetual judgement. I am moving deliberately forward, though sometimes it feels like trudging through mud. I am trusting the way, thankful for all that is well.
