Finding Your Writing Voice on Twitter

"Are you ready for that?"

Kathleen and I were reading Neruda beneath the redwoods. We talked about his exile. I was startled when Kathleen lowered her voice, looked steadily into my eyes and asked the question.

The Bible tells us we must be ready to give up our lives for his sake. Hard saying!

There has to be a balance between our using our own passion to find our creative voice, and allowing God to shape our creativity according to his own designs.

I wouldn't be surprised if we were called to suffer for his kingdom, perhaps in ways we can't even envision.

Twitter could easily turn into a very unsafe place -- so much public, not enough privacy safeguards. I'm glad it's "your thing" at this time, but for me it's not a safe place at all.
In fact, the only really safe place I feel for the writing that unfolds my deepest needs and personhood, is "thought" words offered to God, that don't ever make it to paper or computer.

However, seeing as how you're deeply into poetry, my last 2 blogs express some of my recent ponderings, if you care to check them out.
