At the edges, you find openings and opportunities.
The boundaries between here and there.
Each minute is a boundary between what was and what’s to come.
Each decision crosses a boundary of “what if” and heads for “let’s see.”
Boundaries can be tangible or symbolic.
They can mark the point of crossing or of turning to a different path.
Either way, they are the stuff of living.
I’ve struggled in recent months to find the time and energy to write. A group of writers proposed writing something every day for the month of October, based on a one word prompt, and writing in just five minutes – no worrying about perfect grammar or always being poignant or well-polished. I’m giving it a go in an effort to jump start my writing. For the one word prompts, I’m going to follow along with The Upper Room’s Sight Psalms. They put out a picture a day and apply one word and a short reflection. If you are reading this, thanks for accompanying me for this experiment in motivation and discipline.
