Well, as many of my faithful followers must realize by now, I’m at a loss for words. I’m 60 years old, and have been writing all of my life, whether poetry, short stories, newspaper articles as a teenager, my own book a few years ago and now this blog. But now, there hasn’t been any real inspiration for months, perhaps even longer. I simply don’t know what to write about these days.
Normally I would have written another series on this year’s 11-week stay in Cuba. But I decided not to write it this year, in short, to protect our adopted family and friends there. We discovered some questionable issues plaguing our family there this past year that were too coincidental to be accidental, and appeared to have been directly triggered by my blog series from last year (the 2014 series). We were so deeply disturbed by these “coincidences” and the burden they caused our loved ones there, that I decided not to risk putting any more of our experiences there into the public forum.
So that left a huge void in my blog writings. I enjoy those travel blogs, but since we’re not traveling so much this year, it leaves me with nothing much to write about. I can always write about my angst and ongoing quest to evolve and transform my mindset and heal myself beyond that angst. But that gets old and tiresome after awhile, doesn’t it! (But just to note, I’m still evolving, which is better than regressing).
So I’ve been praying and wondering what to do now that my writer muse has gone on an indefinite hiatus. The answer came to me last night as I was reading an awesome article in another blog, written by one of my Facebook friends. Because it resounded so profoundly with me and articulated this journey that I myself am on (evolving my mindset to transform my angst), I wished I could share Linda’s blog here.
Well, why not?! So that’s what I’m going to do.
For the time being, while my muse recharges her writing batteries, I’d like to take the opportunity to share other people’s writings here. The first one will be Linda’s post copied (with Linda’s permission) from the site “Tiny Buddha”.
