Writing Beyond Grief with The Voice of Compassion

I began writing as a young storyteller before the age of seven. I learned the benefits of cathartic writing only later at about the age of eleven. Writing out my pain relieved the suffering. It took off the top layer so healing could occur. For example, writing till the tears streamed down my face to then gain clarity as to the real emotion behind my upset. ‘Oh yeah, I’m not angry. I’m hurt and sad.’ I then could ...

YOUR SPIRIT AND TIME

When you worry about future time, everything will be that much further away, because you are gauging your Self and your creations against some distant shore that’s always on the horizon. Whereas, when you give up thinking about time, everything comes rushing to meet you.

WELCOME TO MY BLOG:

Welcome to my first post:

Even though I’m a writer, I was a resistant blogger.

I remember when I first heard about blogs. I wondered what I could ever write about that was so important that people would want to read my online journal.
Dribble, I thought. I certainly don’t want to read other people’s journals. But of course blogs took on greater diversity and became more than an online fad about one’s personal life.

I accepted blogs.

I still didn’t ...

Women’s Visions, Women’s Voice

In the joyous tradition of storytelling and story sharing, Ms. Welles’ paints an evening of women as natural leaders.

Stories, poems, monologues ...
