Affirmation 5

With all of the feelings and thoughts around what happened in Charlottesville I found it impossible to meditate this morning until I wrote. 

I wrote my feelings out then moved on to thoughts and beliefs. I wrote one complete poem and then the beginnings and parts of several other poems. I talked with a friend about what happened, signed up to protest in solidarity with Charlottesville and in front of trump tower tomorrow at 530pm (shameless plug if you are in the NYC area, join us!) then I wrote more. 

I created until I could stop and take a break. And today, with the thoughts and feelings I still have racing through my body, all that writing and talking and planning was part of my self care.
