There is something about The Ecstasy Of Gold from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly soundtrack that touches me.
Today it set off an echo of thoughts and ideas in my head that reminds me about a place in my heart I locked up a while ago.
These thoughts pinballing around my head have caused some ideas to shake loose and fall off of the shelves where I had placed them.
The time has come to dust them off and do more than say I’ll tend to them one day.
They live in gardens that have been forgotten and are overgrown with weeds and things that obscure the beauty inside.
Write With Your Heart
I haven’t done a good job of writing with my heart for a while now.
Haven’t followed the rules of the blog by sharing the deep, dark and personal stuff the way I used to do it.
Sure you can say I have been busy and distracted and that this is why I haven’t but it is not entirely true.
I got tired of feeling like I was getting beat up and beat down about a variety of things so I just stopped writing about them.
You might ask if that means I didn’t follow through with my mantra to live your dreams and not dream you life and the answer would be no.
I never gave up on it, but I did stop writing about some of it.
Stopped putting pen to paper or hand to keyboard because of that aforementioned beating.
That twenty-somethingÂ I used to be long ago would have never done that. He would have screamed at the world that he could take whatever was dished out and then proved it by taking it.
I can still take whatever comes but I no longer need to prove it to anyone so I figured it was time for a different approach.
But I made a mistake by not writing the same way, made a mistake by pulling back farther than I should have.
Time to get drunk on writing again and dive back into the stories I used to write. That sentence would read better if it was “The Stories I Write.”
It is time to write with the heart again.
