There is this great encourager in the blogosphere named Lisa-Jo Baker. On Fridays she writes, unedited for 5 minutes and invites others to join her in the quest to write without fear of anything…just write. Most weeks I play along.
Last week, I played along in real life with Lisa Jo and others at Allume. If you click here, you can see the group picture.
If you have never participated, give it a try. The rules are simple. Check them out and get the button code here.
Today’s prompt: ROOTS
I see the prompt and a few ideas run through my head.
I think about exposed roots from overturned trees; a result of hurricane Sandy.
I think about putting down roots. Living in one place for a long time. Leaving that place and leaving my roots.
I think about my son and his roots. While we’ve lived in our current town 5 years, we lived in our previous home – a long way from here – 25 years. Longer than he has been alive. Where are his roots?
I realized that roots take different forms.
Roots can be shallow or deep.
They can go on for a long way.
They can get cut by a sharp object.
They can be knit together in hotel rooms, during late night talks.
Roots take many forms.
Mine are as varied as I am old.
My roots run from west to east, north to south.
From friends to family.
But my real roots…the root that matters…the most constant life giving root is HIM.
