“I dwell in possibility.” emily dickinson

I like to hold the above phrase in my mind as I venture into new areas of life: writing, exercising, thinking, collaging, spirituality, making new friends… they all hold possibility for me. My newest ‘venture’ that I’m wondering about is something that has been lurking down in my soul for a number of years. I’m verbalizing for myself that I would like to write a book. I’ve been reading ‘Finding your own North Star’ by Martha Beck and meeting with a therapist, Kayce Hughlett (www.diamondsinthesoul.com), to explore what is stirring in my ‘essential self’. I have always loved to read: fiction, non-fiction, biographies, memoirs, magazines, etc. I’m not someone who keeps many things like old clothes, keepsakes etc, but what I have kept and continue to keep are all the journals that I’ve written. There are a few boxes out in my garage. What if I was to mine those artistic works and see what shimmers to the surface? What might I discover about myself that might be calling to be crafted into a book?  I don’t know, and I’m ok with that…dwell in possibility. I’m putting into practice something that I’ve done on and off for a number of years – ‘just write’.
