This Blog is My Pensieve*

I’ve known narrative therapy was a powerful part of my process.

The bliss of boiling ambient annoyances down to their post-sized bones. The giggly thrill of a perfect AD quote. The satisfaction of a finished work.

But, lately, I’ve realized the purging power of pressing Publish. How swirling worries weaken me ’til I release them to the web.

Right now, a post penned Tuesday sits queued for Mark’s approval. Reminding me that pending posts leave issues bigger than life.

A published post provides perspective. It’s one post in 362 (now 363), sitting sandwiched and small. A story. Or, as Sheree says, one stop in the dot-to-dot that is the constellation of my life.

So, thank you, blog, for your healing perspective.
And thank you, friends, for the reason to write.

    Okay…this is the kind of writing I told you about that I stand back and think WOW. Even though you were making a wonderful poignant point, I still feel like I was reading a wonderful story.
