How can you be in a trance with your mouth yapping away…writing at least is a silent meditation even though you’re going a hundred miles an hour. -Jack Kerouac
When I started this blog in 2011, I had no direction. I had boredom and depression and desperation, but absolutely no direction. A lot has changed in the past three years. Life has gotten so much brighter and fuller and more wonderful. It has also gotten more difficult. I have a very inconvenient and long term but treatable illness that has forced me to stop moving, stop working, stop neglecting myself.
Here in 2014, life is very different, and I’m curious to track my progress. Part of my 2014 revelation is that writing and meditation are one in the same for me. It has been a persistent thought and today I found this Kerouac quote tucked away in Evernote from 2012. I was planting the seeds for this moment without realizing it.
