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.
Back for my daily installment of plugging through this thing I call the writing life.
I’ve gorged myself on advice and good writing.
I’ve learned a half-dozen different ways to hack my brain.
I’ve strayed a little to figure out how to make my good relationship even better.
And now it’s time to face the blank page.
[Blank no longer, because I’ve spilled black cyberink all over the acres of snowy white, breaking its power.]
I worry that I’m caught in an echo chamber.
Stuck in a maze of glass and mirrors.
And I worry that I’ll never find my way out.
And I’ll be stuck looking at myself for all eternity.
Listening to my own voice, pleading as I go insane.
But then I remember Ariadne’s thread.
There have been people here ahead of me
And some of them have found the way out.
This is more encouragement than I can bear.
And so I risk the echo chamber.
Just to know there’s a way out.
Then I pull up the blank page and start again.
I need to find my way out.
Because there are going to be others behind me trying to follow my thread.
Thank you for your time and attention.
I’d love to know your thoughts on what you’ve read.
