Written language is such a powerful tool for me. There are times writing can be such a tug of war between the heart and mind. The mind wants one thing, the heart another. One way I've found to help bring clarity is through free style writing.
Letting words creativity flow unstructured and intuitively allows instinct to appear on paper. From fragments to long-winded essays, good will come out of these love letters. Surely some of it makes sense and some are like a confusing dream to piece together.
The best part though is coming back later and rereading a particular writing and it clicks! The mind and heart found balance and clarity presents itself.
I keep a colorful spiral notebook for this purpose. It's kept nearby to record whims of fleeting thoughts, moments, and artistic ideas.
Periodically, I visit this collection to incorporate in a new piece of art or refine unfinished works.
Have a beautiful day. Make Time to Write.
