It’s Friday and it’s time to get back in the swing of Five Minute Friday. It’s a discipline I needed to get away from for awhile. But it’s time to get back.
So, here we are. Five minutes of focused writing on the prompt supplied by Kate Motaung. And be sure to visit Kate’s place (http://katemotaung.com/2015/04/30/five-minute-friday-door/)to see what the other talented writers have shared.
The prompt for the week is DOOR. The timer is set, so let’s GO …
When I was going through grief counseling we had an holistic exercise. The leader asked us to close our eyes and go “inside” ourselves. As she guided us in the process, she noted we would come to a door … the door to our heart.
To be honest, I thought it was pretty hokey, but I went along and found the door. What I found was … nothing. It was dark and numb. It was pretty much how I was feeling at the time.
Given my disposition of late, I decided to “revisit” my heart the other night. In silence with my eyes closed and soft New Age music in the background, I started my inward journey to the door. This time when I opened it, it was still dark, but with flashes of light streaming through holes in the walls. I could feel the asymmetrical beat … STOP
… I don’t know what to make of the transcendental journey. I don’t know if it means I’m still grieving or whether I’m somewhat on the mend. I suspect it’s probably a little of both.
That’s my take on this week’s prompt. Again, visit Kate’s place for other insights.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.
