on new years eve I was looking back on the posts of the elephants first journey and I felt the fun I had writing the posts as well as reading them. At the same time I felt sad that I did abandoned the writing not only because of missing time but also because I felt that the mission was accomplished by having done the move from one continent to the other therefore not having any longer an excuse to write publicly about my thoughts an feelings.
I do miss writing and so now I choose to follow-up on it and continue sharing the thoughts which are coming to my mind, somehow without me giving them permission to pop up in my head.
Julia Cameron’s book the right to write, she writes about laying track and looking at writing in a way of setting the thoughts free which come to you. I like her statement that the thoughts are out there somewhere in space and come to you in order to be put down, to be set free.
Without having a valid purpose, I feel taking a risk and exposing myself to the world by sharing my thoughts, but I also know that I need to materialize my thoughts in order to continue the creative journey.
