Daily Gratitude 1/5/14

GratitudeToday I am grateful for making it through a 15 hour day at my MFA program. As exhausted as I am, I cannot even begin to find words for the appreciation I carry in the depths of my being for feeling like this experience will not only make me a better writer and artist but a better person. I understand that bringing my art out of the box I’ve put it in and giving it wings is a gift beyond comprehension right now.

There really is no beginning or end for a writer aside from birth and death…I feel we are born with it and when we leave the world as we know it, the last thought, the last word we utter, the last memory we cling to is the need to swaddle ourselves in words so even our farewell will be a most eloquent living eulogy.
