Matters of the Heart
When there are big deals happening in my life, I am grateful for the small. Pulling myself back again and again to what I might otherwise dismiss helps me to claim what is all around me, in me, of me.
Are they really small or are they forgotten? It feels like I just haven’t gotten to my destination yet or I forget to walk into the writing room that has my name prominently etched on the door.
My writer’s heart. So often I walk around doing and forget that my body of work is limitless when I write in rhythm with the beating of my heart.
My heart keeps pumping even as I glaze over, feel down, leap for joy, go on to that next thing.
In the center of my heart may the purest flame rise up dancing.Janine Canan
- The human heart is divided into chambers
- The heart beats about 100,000 times per day (about 3 billion beats in a lifetime)
A Broken Heart
Inevitably in life your heart will be broken, not once, but many times over.
Follow your Heart
Follow your heart. Our everyday moments remind us repeatedly (if we are listening) that this life does not go on forever.
Write from the Heart
Fill your paper with the breathing of your heart.William Wordsworth
