Well, I have finally finished the book challenge organised by SoFoBoMo. Of course, I continued using a Jungian theme for the project, the same as I had done in previous years. Now that I am done, I am looking forward to next year’s event which should cover the August-September period.
With only two weeks left in my home before I begin a longer than usual return to China, I am finding myself in a bit of a lull. It has been hard to find inspiration for writing lately and I am hoping it will soon change. But then again, this is all part of living as well. As one blogging friend put it recently, one waits for the Muses to point out the next direction. What is different this year as the “lull” is in full bloom is a sense of peacefulness that has come with it. Likely this is due to the fact that I have been here before many times – déjà vu.
At times I wonder if I have said it all and that it is time for silence. But that passes as I know I have barely begun. I have begun to think in larger terms about the idea of taking a theme and writing without photos and without quote references. The day will come at some time in the distant future when the urge to wander the world is stilled and I feel calm sitting in one place. No matter how I look at it, I will be writing likely until I can no longer put words together intentionally to say something.
I am changing but some parts are staying the same – there is a core self that continues to define who I am and what I must do.
