I recently got my latest copy of WellBeing. I love this mag. Sooooo really inspiring and there are so many facinating little (and whhhoooaa large) bits and pieces. I can read it over and over even issues from 12-15 years ago! In this issue there is an article on Creative Writing (and loads more), here is a particular quote I wanted to share:

Go within. Search for the cause, find the impetus that bids you to write. Does it stretch out its roots in the deepest place of your heart? Can you avow that you would die if you were forbidden to write? Above all, in the most silent hour of your night, ask yourself this: Must I write? Dig deep into yourself for a true answer. And if it should ring its assent, if you can confidently meet this serious question with a simple 'I must', then build your life upon it.

-Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926), Letters to a young poet.

How gorgeous.
I love it.
I am by no means a terrific writer, or a poet.
But I love to write.
As I love to take photos.
And I appreciate how fortunate I am that I can do both... often badly, sometimes well and occasionally there is a pearl... and I am really excited.
Passionate regardless.
Imagine getting a note like this... how inspiring? Its inpiring for me to read, perhaps for you?... imagine if you were the one it was actually written for?

Today I am working from home... and its about that time I go make my morning coffee...
Faith peeps. Enjoy today.
