“In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?” – Gabrielle Roth
Welcome! I am so happy that you are here.
If you have read my work in the past, you know that it has been about the search for myself and who I was supposed to be in this world. The story of that search has come over from my old website and is in the archive along the side of the page.
From this post forward, this is a whole new website.
First of all, I am coming out of the closet and nailing my Sacred/ Feminine/ Seeking/ Woowoo/ Whimsical Writer shingle to the front door. This site and all it encompasses is now bravely claimed by me! (I used to blog as megg in an attempt to be a bit selective about who actually saw my freak flag flying.)
Second of all, most of this blog is going to be about stories.
Claude Debussy said, “Music is the space between the notes.” Well I would argue that the spaces, the pauses, and the moments we spend without words are what give our stories their power.
So I invite you to have a look around. I have a bit more of an explanation about things here. I’ll tell you a little bit more about me here. There is a little bit of the book I have written here. And there is a whole page of delicious inspiration here.
I told you that this was a blog about stories, so I’d like to start you off with one right now. This is how we’re going to roll around here from now on! (Please join my mailing list for updates and subscriber-only stories and downloads.) There will be another one on Wednesday, so I hope you will come again soon.
I am looking forward to our adventure together.
with love, Meghan
