Late night, not enough coffee, hanging tightly to the threads of creativity needed to power through the day. Lingering in that state of adrenalin fueled rush that gets you down the road and then throws you to the pavement like road kill. I am there.
Longing to tell you things and fearing incoherence so leaving you with the wisdom of others instead.
Is it really Thursday? Oh yea, I am there. Big red dot marking the spot, three days now history, standing in the present wondering how I got here. Yes I am there.
Eyelids drooping, fingers heavy with fatigue, moving on to a thought for the day.
“The hero slays the dragon.”
(From “The Hero Within: Six Archetypes We Live By“
Carol S. Pearson, Ph.D.)
Finding the fire, unsheathing the sword, bring it on Thursday, I’m ready!

“Finding the fire, unsheathing the sword, bring it on Thursday, I’m ready!” What a wonderful sentence to read on a Friday!

Joanna, I am so glad you wrote about it. It is one of those books that I am sure to read more than once. I’m not to the end yet but really enjoying the insights and having many “aha” moments. 🙂 I am very tired but not to tired to hug you for that comment! Thank you. xoxo

Karen, you are my heroine, always, even half-asleep.
So glad you’re enjoying the book 🙂
