Finding it in the Quiet

blockYou have sat down to write after re-arranging your schedule to make time for it. Your pencil is posed over the paper, or maybe your fingers are posed over the keyboard but nothing comes. No ideas are rolling through your mind only silence and awareness of time ticking by. You strain your thoughts: nothing. With a sigh you lean back and in your chair and close your eyes. You focus on the quiet and the relaxing feeling settling over you and then, wham, there it is and the words follow. A piece of writing is born. Blessed be.
