I exchanged emails with a friend over the weekend in which we discussed things that are happening in our lives. She described what I am experiencing as “iterations”. I knew the term, yet had to look up the definition just to make sure I was correct.
I am a person of words. As a writer, it is my life, my calling to give meaning to the written word, to explore the very depths of my being and find ways of making words into pictures…..sentences into movies that engage the reader, bringing words to life.
I’m sure you are familiar with the word….Iteration….repeating a process with the aim of reaching a desired goal. Such is the life of a blogger. We write, day after day, week after week and so on. But so is life. don’t we repeat the same exercises in survival, in self expression, in working to attain the goals we set for ourselves? I have long loved the nautilus shell for this very reason. The swirls and curls that repeat themselves so perfectly in sync with nature, with their very being.
I have taken to sitting in the morning and writing my thoughts, hopes, dreams and, yes, even my fears. Each day brings fresh pages and new beginnings. Won’t you join me on this Monday in letting your mind wander a bit. Let yourself imagine what could be…..what you long for…..what your dreams express. It’s a new week with lots of possibility! Swirl like a nautilus and find your core….express yourself in new and different ways…..LIVE! Here’s to life, to experience and….to Iteration! (thank you, dear Nancy)
