Lisa-Jo Baker encourages,
“. . .on Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just write without worrying if it’s just right gather to share what five minutes buys them. Just five minutes.” (See more at http://lisajobaker.com/five-minute-friday/ )
Today’s prompt for Five Minute Friday is WRITE.
I’m a bit late for the Five Minute Friday rush, but here is my 5 minutes worth:
To write is a sacred experience; the sharing of one’s heart. There is always uncertainty in how one will be accepted, if one will be understood. To write can bring pain, but to not write is indeed painful. Writing transcends the now. It carries one through, furthering this journey called life as it works out the kinks, smooths out one’s rough edges, and brings a calm amidst the rolling storms. Writing gives a voice when verbal communiqué cannot be risked. When one’s speech seems inadequate, when words become lodged mid-utterance- to write can be an egress to the soul. To write gives life to one’s life.
