“It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” Ursula K. Le Guin
For our final February writing practice, we consider the theme of journeys. Find a quiet place where you can sit without interruptions for fifteen minutes. See the first post for the basic outline of the practice.
So much of our lives is spent traveling, moving from place to place. For some that may be within a bounded geography, learning the deep details of place, others wander the wide, wide world. All of us, however far we range in body, are also on an interior journey. This journey of spirit meanders, goes around and comes around, taking long breaks then suddenly leaps ahead, but it spirals ever onward as we live.
Describe your greatest journey. It may your spiritual journey or it may be a physical journey, or both. Where did you go? How did you travel? What did you do? What did you learn? How did it change you? What did you leave with? Are you still arriving?Spend the time with the question which seems to need answering the most.
Describe your greatest journey.
