Writing for writing’s sake…

It seems in the inertia of my life I have lost time for writing for writing’s sake… to just write because it helps free my mind of the flurry of words within threatening to bury me in an emotional avalanche. I miss spilling my thoughts onto paper, inking them permanent or stamping the pain from memories with every stroke of the keyboard. I miss the inherent reach for any number of journals waiting dutifully within arm’s length. I miss my silent papered friend forgoing judgment, bypassing all niceties for the nitty-gritty of reality.

I think I’d like to return my hand to paper, to journal, to write, to conjure all that is swirling inside to flow through a pen into something trivial, a little less chaotic.

Welcome the Crowtation!

I thought using nifty graphics to manage the use of quotations would be nice. Then, I thought adding quotations to a site named crowgyrls… hrm… quotations… crow… quo… crowtations!!!! Clever little devil that I am… or think I am. Yay! Then I googled the word and well, I was not the first bird brain to come up with this word but I will use it anyways for block quotes on this site. So, here goes… one of our favorite quotes.

Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.” — Barbara De Angelis
