Faith seeking understanding #024: Honestly, on having not much to say

Faith seeking understanding, my personal journey towards a deeper knowledge of and intimacy with God, the cosmos, humanity and myself through thoughts, words and (occasionally) images, is a series of [hopefully] daily reflections I’m writing with the purpose of publishing something on a regular basis for others to read, either here, at joncarllewis.com or among my writings at Medium.com.

I’m tired. My eyes are tired, my fingers are tired, my voice is tired. And I am feeling the pressure to crank out something brilliant to say before I give up, turn off the light and go to sleep. Maybe brilliant won’t happen tonight. Maybe I need to shoot for honesty, for candor instead.

What do I need do be candid about? What needs to be spoken? The trouble is that I’m in that space between having too much to say (and not having enough energy to launch something ambitious) and having too little to say (and not being able to work up something readable). So, that’s what I’m going to be honest about: I’m not in a space to tackle something ambitious tonight. Tonight, I’m just showing up. I’m not quite phoning it in, but I am under no illusions of producing great literature in the next hour and forty-five minutes.

So, dear reader, I’ll let us both off easy tonight.

I’ll bring this reflection to a quick and painless end.

And I promise I’ll see you tomorrow.

[Probably with something much more interesting than what I’ve come up with today.]

Thank you for your time and attention.
I’d love to know your thoughts on what you’ve read.
