On the most surface level of this question, I have many names. The first name given by my parents, the middle name I adopted when I was 21, the spiritual names I got along the way, the pseudonym I sometimes write under. On the next level it has to do with the roles I have played in life: wife, mother, program manager, writer, awareness practitioner. But on an even deeper level that question gets to the root of the mystery of life itself. Am I my thoughts? my feelings? my body? my brain? or am I something much greater, perhaps the source from which that very question is asked . . . And that mystery is one I am still unraveling. (less)

From that perspective, there is no bad writing only the failure to put pen to paper, fingers to keyboard. In my meditation practice, I call it "making it to the cushion." It is honoring the commitment, pure and simple--no judging whether it is good or bad. In writing being freed up to write garbage some days, allows the words to keep flowing. It also helped to have what I think of as a taskmaster--someone who knows of my commitment to whom I am accountable; someone who will pointedly ask me at the end of the day or week, "How many pages did you write?" Knowing that question is coming keeps me writing.(less)
