TweetI just returned from Voices of Our Nation Arts Foundation (VONA) on a red eye from California this morning. From the brisk, sweet breeze of Berkeley, I step into a thick water soaked towel of humidity called Ohio with its oppressive heat index and barely livable summer conditions.
I’m trying to hold onto the transformative week I just had; learning about the craft and artistry of writing and my reflections on my week submerged in an entirely different culture.
But I can’t writer when my eyes won’t open, when my brain is still on a jam packed airplane refusing to move on the runway. My body is still back there somewhere. And I need rest, deeply.
So, my advice to you today is this: go into the wilderness of your life. Take a turn that you would never plan and be open to whatever the Universe is directing. Listen.
Changing your life may be one decision away. And it may be the best thing you ever did for yourself.
