If I Hadn’t Been in the Habit of Writing…


If I hadn’t been in the habit of writing about my world, would I have realized that it is so grand?

Troubled times lends to tunnel vision and I’ve managed to keep my spirits flying, creativity dancing, and hope still growing despite skirting sadness and strife from neighboring kindgoms, war and deceptions across the river and feeling the momentary weariness that overwhelms me during random seconds of time.

If I hadn’t been in the habit of writing, would I have realized that I look at life as poetry, as a dance as well as a sonata? And if I hadn’t been in the habit of writing, would I had been able to refer to favorite memories, snippets of conversations that made me all the wiser and see that I have a kingdom of people beside me and before me making the world I experience a magnificent and special place.

Would I had been able to see that I slay dragons and host festivals? Visit wonderlands and weather storms? And see that life never has a boring moment when you play with words, notes, and pictures before an audience of kindred spirits that span the world over.

If I hadn’t been in the habit of writing, would I have realized that my solitudes blesses me with creativity and strength and not a day goes by without my recognizing that I am loved and respected enjoying the spaces of my silence to reflect on how amazing the whimsical and revered adventure is. Writing and poetry, dance rehearsals and a few seasons with a ladies Bible study, paced onto travels to foreign lands, podcasting an internet radio show, photoshoots with Candy Wax Cutie and a Toastmasters Club in Toluca Lake.

And if I hadn’t been in the habit of writing, would I have realized that as I am a musician, a dancer, a poet; so is everyone? Everyone has a song, a poem and knows when something moves them. And perhaps if they also wrote…

Would they see how grand their world is too?
