For this challenge on Sept 13, Calen borrowed a question from Janet Thomas over at Elixir: Creative and Reflective Writing – who as Calen put it “did a post about dry times in our creative lives and how her three-year-old grand-daughter had something wonderful to teach her about playing!”
Honestly, I feel like for the majority of my life I haven’t gotten what I really wanted. I’ve had more roadblocks placed in front of me – some of my own making and others from just random bad luck – that I cannot remember when any of them turned out to be a stroke of luck. I’ve pretty much given up on trying to get things that I want and just let life happen. It’s really hard to imagine a negative in my life actually being an unintended positive. I guess this is one question that will have to go unanswered, at least for now.
