Solitary but not Alone

Solitary but not Alone
 
Writing can be a very solitary existence.  You are alone in your office or cubby hole or corner of the room tapping away on the keyboard absorbed in your own little world.  It can be great and yet it can be full of interruptions and outside world distractions.
 
One must channel enough and yet like the whale in a deep sea dive know when to surface for air.  Crave oxygen, take a deep breath and plunge back in for more channeling.  The sequence takes timing and rhythm and knowing one’s own limits.  I alone know how comfortable I am on each under water exploration and know the capacity and limits of my system and likewise you know yours.  Some days it can be extremely functional and allow extremely deep dives and some days one barely gets below the surface when something or someone calls you up to the surface.
 
We are all diving for that once in a life time treasure that will pay off big time for us and our family, whether monetarily or just from knowing that you had and wrote a good thought.
 
For me this is one of my finest I believe from when I was having a conversation with my 88 year old mother.  “The hardest thing about life is accepting your limitations, work with what you have and don’t worry about what you don’t have.”  That is a priceless gem that just popped out of me one day.
 
Keep diving and you will also find your priceless gem in a place you did not even conceive you knew or was possible.
