Where Did My Words Go?

After a long dry spell of not writing much of anything, the last session with Dr Canali flipped the switch back on.  Since getting home, I've been writing like crazy this week.  Writing is my way of getting information out, but its also my way of processing life.  I had just lost the words for awhile.

Some might call it writer's block or some other fancy word, but the words were not there.  I don't even think they were floating just beyond reach.  I just was not able to come up with any, let alone string them together in a sentence.

Usually writing is not difficult for me, especially if I am writing from my heart.  The words normally flow and the thoughts come together.  This is why this period of time in the last months has been difficult for me.  I'm not used to dealing with this issue.

There is a scene in one of the early John Boy Walton movie specials where John Boy looks at his parents and makes a statement about all of the words swirling around in his mind.  I feel much the same way that if they don't find a creative way out, they just jumble my brain.

I don't know where the words come from, but they are there.  They just show up and sometimes I just have to stop and write, kind of like I am doing right now.  If I try to ignore them, the prompts to write just get stronger and stronger.

Some days my posts are a build up of things that I have experienced over many moments and sometimes they are just reactions I have in my day.  Writing gives me an outlet to process and coral my thoughts.  This blog has been wonderful because it has allowed me to open the relief valve rather than keep everything bottled up inside of me.
