Even on the best of days, I’m a little crazy. This is a little update to let you know just how crazy I’ll be going in November.
First, I want to say “thank you” to everyone who travels with me on this hair brained journey of mine to follow the advice of Dr. Joseph Campbell and follow my Bliss. There was never a promise that it would be easy or “fun,” simply that it would always be worth it. The people in my life who nurture my aspirations and offer support in a variety of ways are part of what makes it so.
My Favorite Holiday
I’ll turn 34 on December 8th. Now, I’ve always said that it’s my favorite holiday, and I’ll throw a party for one if nothing else. Last year, as my birthday gift, I asked for everyone I know to give a little of their time to a good cause and do a bit of community service of their choice.
This year, while I hope you’ll choose to do so again, I decided I would give presents to all of you. Not that I have any money to go out and buy things, but I do have something to offer. It’s something that represents my time and energy, as well as being a direct reflection of my choice to follow this Path.
A Gift of Words
I’ve often been told I have a particular knack with language. It’s something that stirs up the soul-stuff in me that would otherwise settle and be lost. I want to give that gift back to the world.
So I had an idea. It’s something that will require all of November and part of December. In order to adequately celebrate the fact that I am alive, conscious, and capable of communicating my thoughts, I’m going to give away one title every week to anyone who wants it. Because such a celebration can’t possibly be fit into a single day, can it?
I’ll post a new link each week–here and to the various social mediums in which I participate–all you have to do is click the link. If you don’t have an e-reader, don’t fret. Amazon offers a free application that enables you to download ebooks of all sorts to any device, from a smart phone to a desk top computer.
It would mean a great deal to me if you would accept my gifts this year. That’s all I want for my birthday–to know that my words are reaching someone, and that they know how much I value them in my life.
This week’s title is a volume of poetry that treats with the human experience of loneliness and how it shapes the creative journey. Thank you for being a part of mine.
