I am very curious about conversation.
I love to talk with people about more than the weather.
I want to know what you think, how you see the world and what strikes you as beautiful, memorable or important.
And I want to know what you dream of, where you’d like to adventure, what you care about, and where you see yourself in five years.
I’d like to be part of making that happen for you, if only by leading my life full out so you have someone else out in the world to bounce off of.
In my morning reading, I came across this passage by Jan Phillips in her book, No Ordinary Time. She writes about authentic conversations and describes being surprised by a conversation she started with a young man in a diner by asking where he gets his values.
“If someone doesn’t go first, how do authentic conversations ever get started?”
Then later in the day, I came across Seth Godin’s blog post titled, Go First. You can find it here. I cannot quote it because it is so short and to the point, I’d ruin it for you.
On Laundry Line Divine, I endeavor to share my creative life with you.
I aim to make sense of my mothering by expressing from inside my experience. I use my words, my images and what I see in the world and bring to you here as conversation starters. Perhaps we will meet in person or you will comment, but mostly, I imagine you might bring this conversation in to your own life and see what happens.
It is summer and I bet you’d rather be out picking blueberries, but since you are here-maybe it is late evening and the fireflies are out…maybe you live in Australia and it is a chilly winter morning and your gripped cuppa is sending up steam between these words and your eyes…maybe you are on the subway heading in to the city for work, these words and images slim in your palm…whatever and where ever you are as you read this, I hope you know how much I appreciate your attention.
I imagine that you may need just a bit of company and a tiny dose of inspiration to set your day right.
I hope you find that here on Laundry Line Divine.
From my bright light to yours,
PS Here is a video of Jan’s that gets me going every single time.
