Today I’m writing for five minutes with Lisa-Jo. No editing, no backtracking, no overthinking – just wild writing. That’s a good thing because I don’t have much faculty for any other kind at this point. I’ve been moving from one house to another all week and this has been my first chance to get on here.
We’d love for you to join us. Set your own timer for five minutes; write like the wind, then link up with the rest of us. Here’s the truly great and important part. Be sure you visit at least the person who linked up before you and leave a little comment love on their post. If you want your own extra bit of encouragement, turn off your captcha or other little comment hula hoops. It just makes the world a happier place. Here we go:
I try to listen – intently at times. The sound just doesn’t seem to be there when I go searching for it.
Other times, the silence around me can be the most refreshing part of life.
How do I replace the noise with what will be meaningful, life-giving… life changing?
The hum of the computer is the only sound, interrupted by the shuffling, clicking sound of these keys. It’s kind of nice. I haven’t heard it in a while.
Another sound I haven’t heard for a while is the rustle of the pages in my Bible. I think that needs to be the next sound I hear – even before posting this.
What I really need is to adjust my tuner, much like a radio that is not quite on the station. There is just too much static to find the rhythm and dance with the music.
