Tell the Story

Ground, Part Two

Filed in Writing :: February 10, 2012

I spend a lot of time up in my head.

Thinking, thinking, thinking.

Sometimes I forget that there’s life outside my head, that my head is attached to my body, that I’m sitting on a planet that supports me.

I start my writing workshops by asking everyone to do what I know I need to do: remember the ground.

The ground underneath our feet, underneath our chairs.  We sink down into it, taking a few deep breaths, letting go of our busy days.

Sometimes I give in to the impulse to take off my shoes.
