when i write, it floods from me. the everything i think of, what i want to show, each word that moves me. the do you see this too.
then i edit.
i take out the distractions.
the already said.
the less necessary so what i hand out is of worthwhile weight.
the for another time. part of a different story.
i trade one word for another. shaping them to feels right fit.
i have run full tilt into the holiday season and i am stumbling from the impact. the flood of movement and getting to. is this enough for my love to show.
around me the anxious and sometimes frozen that comes with a longer than each day list to be done. the i-should-we-always-do-it-that-would-make-it-special.
so i am beginning to edit.
to find the worthwhile weight.
to let go for another time.
shaping the doing and making and giving to a feels right fit.
but seek first the kingdom of god and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
