What do you wish to immerse yourself in?
I think for me this week’s wish is going to be quite a bit like last week’s wish, and that’s just fine. That obviously means that I’m needing and wishing for the same things, that those desires have yet to be met.
This week, I want to immerse myself in the following:
- Creativity. My soul screams for this on a regular basis and the little bits and pieces that I manage to steal are more like appetizers rather than dinner. It takes the edge off but doesn’t leave me feeling fulfilled. I’m finding more and more ways to express my creativity, but I’m not actually finding all the time that I need in which to do those things. Soon, though. Hopefully soon. There is Thanksgiving break coming and shortly after that will be Christmas break. I’ll have time. And as I get more fully into this schedule, as my body and my mind adjust, it will be better.
- Community. I miss my tribe. I’ve been missing them now for about 6 years? I miss being around Writing Project people and the connection that comes from those conversations and expressions. A week or so ago at a workshop, I came to the realization that if I wanted wasn’t appearing then perhaps I was going to need to make the effort to create it myself. Surely I’m not the only one of us who is feeling the lack of connection to each other now. So. Something has to give.
- Love. I miss Sweet Husband, and the time we spend together is fraught with all of those things that must be done and haven’t been done and should be done and need to be done. It makes it hard to connect with each other when we don’t have a lot of downtown. It doesn’t help that the last two weekends, Sweet Husband has been sick and we haven’t been able really do anything the last few weeks when we have had time together.
What about you? In what do you wish to be immersed this week?
