Day 21 ~ Enemies and memories… #30DayWriting

20140722-090759-32879936.jpg

Becoming Vulnerable 30 Day Writing Challenge day 21:

Reconciliation agreement. Occupation. No support. Palestine. Gaza. Threats. International crisis. Doesn’t want peace. A just peace. Willing to give up the occupation. There is no genuine interest to give up the occupation. Israel. Settlements. To return lands. I have no intention to give up this piece of land! Casualties. War crimes. Human displacement. Colonialism. Expulsion. Apartheid. The roots of conflict. Our roots. Refugees. What will be left behind. How will we be remembered? What will remain?

All words I am hearing this morning as I begin my day.

There are things that have happened to us that have marked us, traumatized us, and then there are things happening right now that threaten to destroy entire futures, lives and dreams.

I can’t pretend that this morning my prompts come from the most peaceful of meditations… but we are called to dig deep and remember moments that have affected us and draw on some things… Think about the stories you are writing… how can you connect these themes/words to your characters/stories?

Whatever the first thing is that comes to your mind… Write this.

Take a deep breath… sit somewhere comfortable… don’t think about it… allow what comes up to guide you. We will start with a warm-up, set your timer for (5 minutes):

Warm-up prompt (5 minutes): I REMEMBER WHEN… (BEGIN!)

Deep breath– release…

Day 21 prompt: “I’M NOT THE ENEMY…” (Set timer for (15 minutes)BEGIN!)
Ingram
“I’m not the enemy…”

END TIME!!!

Tell me about your process… How do you feel?

I look forward to reading your responses.

Wishing you all the most beautiful day filled with love, light and continual inspiration.

And so it is. Namaste. Aché

With all my love,
Alicia
