Writing in the Presence - Oct. 13
The Presence is in the lily…. It is in the altar cloth and the crucifix, in the minaret and the yarmulke and the shawl, in the Hebrew/Aramaic/Greek/Latin/English Bible, in the sacred stories, pictographs, dances and other rituals of native peoples, in the Holy Koran and int the sayings of the Buddha….. The Presence is mystery. It is breath. It breathes, and I feel its breath on my hand as I write….
Writers call the Presence by many names - muse, inspiration, imagination, memory, the Divine. Words given voice called forth a universe into being. You are invited to bring an open mind, open spirit to using words to create worlds, real and imagined. We will draw upon many paths as we seek Presence.
Writers, as well as those who don’t think of themselves as writers, are welcome and encouraged to join us. Faith is the evidence of things unseen. This is an invitation to step out on faith to discover the power of your own words and stories. We are all creative spirits.
Talking to paper is talking to the divine.—Nina Holzer
