The last two months have been a wonderful experience. I’ve been writing and painting a lot and some things have materialized that I didn’t know I had in me. I’m currently in the process of illustrating a children’s book for adults that I wrote. I’ve sold a few paintings and I was just hired at an interior design firm based on my home remodel project. I was helping a woman tidy her basement for she and her hubby had just moved into a new home and there were still lots of boxes to go through. She said she was impressed with my ability to handle a project of that scope and she loved the finished project. Good things do come to those who wait! If you’re reading this and I haven’t heard from you in a while, shoot me a line so we can catch up, firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy Spring, Everyone and below is one of the writings that I’ve done since the start of the new year. <3
CONVERSATIONS WITH LOVE
M: Where have you been?
M: Well if you’ve been here, where have I been?
L: Not here.
M: Well if I’ve not been here then where have I been?
L: In the past or in the future but certainly not here. I know because I’ve been trying to reach you.
M: You’ve been trying to reach me, when?
L: All the time...24/7
M: How would I have known that you were trying to reach me? I mean I feel like I’m present all day and I’m looking for you constantly.
L: You don’t need to look for me I’m already with you.
M: How can you be with me and I not know you’re there?
L: Because you’re always thinking about what you’ve done and what you need to do.
M: Aren’t I supposed to do that?
L: Well yes, but only for a moment and then the in between times you can stop thinking and just be. Just remember me, be me, and see me in all things.
M: But I don’t know how to do that.
L: Stop thinking about what has been or needs to be done. Contemplate what it would be like to be me. When you’re in your car how would I, Love, be as the driver in the car? When you’re at work contemplate how I, Love, would be towards the people in the office and how would I address the work needing to be done? When you’re looking at yourself in the mirror or speaking to yourself in your mind, contemplate how I, Love, would address both of those things. It really boils down to how and who you want to be. Without me I’m guessing you’re feeling your life is quite empty?
M: Yes, so empty.
L: Well, conduct an experiment. Put on my qualities like a superhero cape and see how it goes.
M: I don’t know what to say...
L: Perfect and let’s check in regularly to see how things are growing. And don’t forget, you can have me all the time you just have to remember me for I am always with you.
