i've never been in a writing circle. It is wonderful.
I thank Julie Daley for the inspiration
and for her leadership in creating this space of Writing Raw.
relationship in a writing circle
is listening and being listened to,
a seeding place,
nurtured by listening and being listened to.
I acknowledge my widening,
listening to and feeling others,
but not losing myself.
like breathing this is,
this writing together is like breathing.
we've created a space to breathe and be breathed in.
I feel us as our words form on the exhale, our listening a deep inhale, deeper and deeper, expanding exhaling into the world again.
yes, it's loving what we're doing, loving ourselves this way, and expressing that which speaks as love from the temple center.
the woman's temple doors are open to us, to write, to breathe freely, to create.
dare i say, for Her sake? for her joy?
i sense the opening occurring as service.......a joyful service,
to write, to create,
to be woman
in a circle.
