I visit Ronna Detrick’s blog RENEGADEconversations daily. Her entry for January 1, 2010 was short and sweet and has stuck with me for days, mulling its way around in my mind, my heart and my soul. I truly think you should all head over to read this entry as it will not take long.
Ronna’s blog entry focuses on an Emily Dickinson quote. Dickinson is one of my favorite American poets. Here I will share the quote and then my thoughts.
The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience. – Emily DickinsonMy soul has spent time not open, not ajar. I spent many years thinking that I was open to experience but was not. The past two to three years I have left that door ajar. I have welcomed what has come in. I have lived to my fullest. I want to continue this so will be working on an art piece based around this quote. Thank you, Ronna, for your inspiration!!
