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

Day 40 – Poetry for Lent

Hope Soars

Hard to believe the sun still shines
with you sealed in a tomb
people go about their business
dawn comes and the world turns
sending the sun sliding down 
past the horizon
And it all seems wrong.

Hopelessness is a heavy weight
we've carried these last couple days
when little over a week ago
we followed you in
a triumphal entry
a celebration of the Messiah
Where did it go wrong?

Morning comes early
for sleepless sleepers
on this third day
the last task waits
the anointing of His body
a bittersweet final goodbye
but the stone rolled away  
signals something wrong.

Why do you look for the living
among the dead, proclaim
men who gleam like lightning
He is not here for
He has risen!
And what was wrong
becomes right

Hope soars
