I've been writing prompts this morning. Lightning round questions are the most fun to dream up. I love how silly they can be. Lovely or lively? An itch or a tickle? Bongos or castanets? Those are a few from today's wonderings.
Other prompts require deeper reflection though. Sometimes, like today, the thought process is tinged with a sense of . . . I don't know. It's sadness, I think. Do we talk enough about how very difficult journaling can be? To try to be completely honest with ourselves. To try to put into words the parts that hurt. For me, writing the prompts first offers a small sense of perspective - that there is good along with the bad.
