stumblina

November 23, 2010

Oh Creative One, my daughter showed me her knee today. She said, “Look at that. The owie is all healed. It is all goned. All go-ed away.” Her knee had indeed healed and there was no evidence of a scrape that had been caused by one of her frequent tumbles. She’s hit an age where her body is bigger than she’s had time to adjust to and she stumbles so much we call her stumblina.

Tumbling Creative One! I don’t want you to think that all healing means that everything returns to normal. Sometimes there is a scar and usually for major life events like childbirth, or a car accident, or even a chosen tattoo. Those scars should be carried with grace and pride into every aspect of your life, including your creative work. They are a part of you and I’m thankful for it.
