What is it you wish to say? What is the heart of the matter? (The blog 27 days asks what you would write on a sick bag on a plane going down...)
Today I petted a cat, watched koi fish swim in a front yard fountain, saw a hummingbird and a swarm of bees, some ants. A hawk and a hillside terraced with wildflowers. We can learn everything we need to know about how to live from animals, creatures, nature. I know you know that. But maybe, like me, have forgotten.
Another blog stresses that writers must know their audience - whom are they writing to? As I walked, thinking of my post today, this question stymied me.
Then I realized.
I am writing to one person. And that person is the one who will most take my words to heart. I am writing to your heart.
