Wednesday Words – Change
I originally posted this blog at WOWH
I am learning to accept change and live with it.
At the moment, I’m going through a lot of changes in several aspects of my life. I feel unstable, disturbed, stressed.
This is affecting my creativity. I don’t have time to do what I call “proper” writing; novel writing. I have hardly any time in which to write at all.
Instead, I write 3 short pieces daily; a stone, a haiku and an elfje. Often I write all three on the same subject, trying to look at the one thing I’ve noticed from 3 different angles. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. It’s not getting the novels written, but it is keeping the flow of creativity going – a small trickle anyway.
I comfort myself with this thought…
Last autumn I dug over the front flower bed, took out lots of bulbs, dug deep and let oxygen in. This spring, despite removing many bulbs, many crocuses have flowered, far more than last year.
Will this deep disturbance and re-arrangement I am experiencing, produce multiple beautiful blossoms in 5-6 months time?
