This morning I peeked at pieces I’ve written recently (and some that are still ‘in the pipeline’) and remarked (yes, talking to myself) that three words seem pervasive: LOVE, MAGIC, WONDER.
No, I didn’t do an official search and count…I’m not going for precision here. But still, I spent a meditative moment (followed by some necessary self-talk) ruminating about being repetitive and boring.
Yep – there’s the self-evaluator in me surfacing. I hollered back, ‘So what? What’s true, is true!’ And then I remembered this from Persian poet Hafiz:
“The words you speak become the house you live in.”
Taking a little liberty and swapping out ‘speak’ for ‘think’ or ‘write’ offers the guidance I needed. It’s okay. Go forward, Vicki, and use “love, magic, wonder” endlessly, boldly, authentically.
And so…I send those three things to you today. Love, magic and wonder – in abundance!
