I began this blog to share ideas that have been brewing in me for some time, which I had been gathering for a book about spirituality. Each post was part of the third draft of the book. The blog was structured based on the chapters of the book. You can find out more about that on the about page of Finding Our Way Home.
I have been thrilled to share these ideas in this format, and to connect with readers who have followed the blog, liked or commented on posts, and shared their own thoughts and feelings. Thank you! I have now posted everything in this draft of the book, and have come to a crossroads–what next?
Do I continue to blog on waking up to the earth, to each other, and to the mystery with new entries? Or, do I take some time off to work on the book as book again, and see what I can do to turn this draft into the next draft? Do I repost the original entries and share the book all over again in that way? I have noticed that it is rare for someone to read a post, and then decide to read the rest of the blog. It doesn’t really function like a book. Yet it has its own appeal. There is a certain momentum that a blog creates, that is hard to let go of.
But in any case, I do need to pause, to have some space to listen to what the next steps will be. And so I wanted to let you know what was brewing in me, and ask for your blessings on this writing journey.
Myke, I certainly honor the need for a pause –and my vote would be for a book
I vote for the book, too!
