About World Walking

Hello World Walkers!

World Walkings

World Walkings

As a writer, reader, and an artist, I find myself wandering in different worlds quite often. The more I do, the more I learn about myself, the real world, and other people. On some days the sideways jump between worlds doesn’t seem so difficult, but on other days… it’s about as easy as leaping the Grand Canyon. There’s all these other things that get in the way–like work and chores, or even eating and sleeping. Still, when I get immersed in writing (or reading or painting) nothing else matters.

So how do we find a balance between the have-to real world and the want-to worlds?

How do you “get into” other worlds? And, for that matter, how to you transition back? This website is dedicated to the journey toward a more creative life. Come World Walking with me.

Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.” –Henry David Thoreau

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.” –Carl Sagan

Brokenness and Joy

Joy can bloom through the cracks.

I came across this awesome Brainpickings article talking about Anne Lamott’s (one of my favorite writers!) thoughts on the relationship between brokenness and joy. Given that the world and all of us in it are broken, I think this article a super important read–because who doesn’t want to be joyful?
