In the past month I have started posts about

  • helping people
  • being helped (and being vulnerable)
  • reaching out if you see someone struggling
  • weeding
  • being your best self (and being your worst self)
  • being stretched vs being centered
  • being kind
  • recognizing cruelty (and what to do about it)
  • standing up when you are scared (to stand)

I have published none. I cannot seem to finish them. I cannot seem to find a way to resolve them or say what I want to say. It might be because I don’t know exactly what I want to say, but there are a few common themes.

  1. Be kind
  2. Help each other
  3. Dig in the dirt and spend time outside
  4. Challenge yourself but know where your center is
  5. Stand up for kindness (and against cruelty)

And that is how it works when you are blocked.


If I were my own best friend I would tell myself to look back at where I have come from (lots of unpublished posts), reflect on where I am (frustrated with a steaming pile of unpublished posts), and move forward (publish a post that is a compilation of all the steam). Done. There might a train analogy in here (steam and locomotion) or a compost analogy (steaming pile and creating something new). But I am going to leave you on your own to mull that over (cider and such, mull, get it? ha. tis the season).

  1. As I “mull” it over I think your posts are wonderful. They are filled with incite, they make me smile and think about life.
    My advice; ponder away but keep them coming!!
    A door or window will open and the right path will be there, because you care.
