What I was doing was…

More exploring memories and stories of the past as part of the novel thing. 5 minutes of meditation and 10 minutes of writing that just zipped by and bubbles up some interesting new thoughts about old ways of seeing things in my life. I really appreciated this morning that of course my understanding of past events are just stories, in some cases very old stories written by someone (me) working with the information and the wisdom I had at the time -and with new information and new wisdom perhaps I would not write those stories in quite the same way anymore. Thinking about the value of revisiting, really taking time to sit with and question old stuff -it feels liberating as well as stirring up all sorts of feelings. Going to keep doing this: whether or not it’s useful for the project it feels like a meaningful exercise and practically it slots in nicely into the limited time I have this month t work on my creative stuff.
