Creativity Project Year Two-Day 77

Journal entry:

Journal 3-26-20130001


In Passing

Here I am again
Writing out my many lines,
In hope of reaching
Someone’s heart, making my voice
Heard beyond this lonely space.

There you are reading
These words I so carefully
Chose to place before
Your eyes with the intention
Of influencing your thought.

Everywhere I go
I try to capture something
Of the essential
Quality of life’s meaning
And distill it into verse.

Here, there, everywhere
I gather up the phrases
That will somehow change
Or impact lives in contact
With mine through these expressions.

Will anyone long
Remember or soon forget
What I have written
Of my life’s experience;
Just here, there, and everywhere.

I am grateful:

1.   I stayed home all day.
2.   My package came, so I have the right power adapter for my laptop.
3.   Mom went out with her best friend, June.
4.   My hair does not require cutting as often as Mom’s does.
5.   My life is not as stressful as those of some others.


I like Tuesdays like today, when I can stay home and enjoy the peace and relative quiet. I hope your day was full of joy and smiles. Now I urge you to engage your imagination in doing something creative. Your mind is filled with ideas that will appeal to other people. You just have to excavate the treasure you possess within you. I am not endowed with any special quality that you do not also embody. So if I can work creatively, so can you.

As a prompt, write about what you think might happen if you suddenly disappeared. You might handle this as a poem, story, or journal entry. If you use the prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below. I look forward to reading what you create.

Thank you so much for reading my blog. I hope you will come back to visit often, but you might also want to enter your email above and subscribe to Chronicles. I am always glad to receive your comments. Your words encourage and challenge me to continue this Creativity Project.

Jo Ann

    You make a difference, my friend, trust me. Your writing affects more people than you will ever know. Just because we don’t get comments to what we write doesn’t mean it hasn’t been read, and had an effect on smeone’s life.

    Every once in a while I get a comment left by someone who has read a piece of mine and the comment they leave is much more than just a simple, and short one.

    Jo Ann, you have such a significant impact on people who read your blog and yet you doubt yourself. God loves you! You are alive and you have purpose. Every evening I anxiously await your blog showing up in my inbox. I love the effort you put into your poetry and your photos are beautiful.

    So, in answer to your question, yes you would be sorely missed if you were no longer with us. Life is a cycle of birth and death for all of us so we know that when we are gone life goes on for others, but without your daily wisdom, poetry and photos my life would be different as would the lives of many others.

    You may have just been having an off day, or you may be on the up and down cycle all of us experience at times, or you may have forgotten to take some of your medication. Whatever the reason for your melancholy words in your journal today please know that even if you are not acknowledged by anyone you are still a valued light of truth and love on this Earth and you help us all. each one of us has to believe in our own inherent value. We are all God’s children and therefore precious even if sometimes it doesn’t feel that way.

    Enjoy the beauty of spring and rebirth!
