Over the last couple of days, I have been dipping in and out of 'Winter Hours' by Mary Oliver. Her introduction is just what I need in this season of living and writing. The idea that our story is never finished is what often stops us from writing at all. The present moment is all we have, the meeting place of experience and circumstance intersecting with our season and life, cycles of nature, and the generational turnings of culture.
I find the phrase 'happily unfinished' liberating. I hope you do too."
