What I Know For Sure

"I close my eyes, turn inward, and breathe until I can sense the still, small space inside me that is the same as the stillness in you and in the trees, and in all things.  I breathe until I can feel this space expand and fill me.  Then...I smile at the wonder of it all."
                                      --Oprah Winfrey

I read something the other day that struck me with the energy of a lightning bolt.  Terry Tempest Williams wrote an essay about discovering her mother's journals [diaries] after she'd passed away only to discover they were blank.

I don't want my legacy to be empty pages.

If I am the only one who can be held responsible for filling them - Then perhaps, I ought to write.  Yes?


That's all for today.
