Reflections in Ink

Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are. The job of your voice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents of your mind, your heart, your soul.
Meg Rosoff

For many of us it is a challenge to find time to reflect. We live in times that find us striving to catch up, stay on top, and be current. Where can we find time for quiet thought? Often that moment comes at the point of a pen, when you have a blank card in front of you and a compelling reason to write.

Mother’s Day and graduations are looming, often giving rise to thoughts about someone or something that made a difference in your life. Mothering is a big job so it is no surprise that the duties are covered off by a wide network of people who encourage, protect, nurture and challenge us. Maybe you were privileged to have a superior teacher to guide you through confusing times.  Perhaps a neighbour or relative inspired your dreams. Even random events can change the course of our lives in a powerful way; write about that!

Reflection allows us to revisit those life changing people or events. So with Mother’s Day as an excuse, why not carve out some time to acknowledge those contributors with a letter. You might be writing to a stranger who said just the right thing at the right time or perhaps to “great” ancestor in your family tree. Your letter of acknowledgement is good therapy for you and a gift from the heart for the recipient.

Who knows, maybe you will become one of those milestone people in someone’s life!
