    First of all, I love your blog! I think the visual and spiritual tone is calming, open and inviting! Is that your lovely dog? So cute….

    I don’t think you realize how inspiring you are in your honesty, especially through your own experiences and thoughts. I absolutely love your referencing Amy Tan and Elizabeth Gilbert and how they ‘metabolize’ and harbor and discover and harness and revel in and manifest and play and hold hands with and reconcile whatever that thing is we call creativity. Awesome topic to dive into and get lost in….Thank you for this blog and for sharing a deep part of yourself with the world!

    1. Jeanna,

      First – Thank you!!!
      Yes, that is my old puppy Gordy. He is equally lovable and stinky.
      You’ve hit on what I’ve been thinking a great deal about, honesty. Recently, I reread Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.

      Anne Lamott wrote, “Becoming a writer is about becoming conscious. When you’re conscious and writing from a place of insight and simplicity and real caring about the truth, you have the ability to throw the lights on for your reader. He or she will recognize his or her life and truth in what you say, in the pictures you have painted, and this decreases the terrible sense of isolation that we have all had too much of” (p.225-226).

      So that’s what I’m trying to do, tell my truth.
      Christine

  2. Do you think one is born a reader? Like being born left-handed, or blonde, or cranky? If not, what do you believe causes one to become (or not) a reader? The call of words and/or stories? Proclivities?

    How can a writer NOT be a reader? What thread was broken or never born?

    1. What a great question. I believe words and stories call to us. Some of us are more selective and some people (let’s just say me) will read the back of the cereal box if nothing else is available.

      I agree, a writer needs to read.
