So it was New Years Day, and the somewhat older blogger, (ok no snickering here please) stomped off into the woods, to talk to the Sky. He reached a tree stump and sat down.
As he looked up, he had frustration in his voice and said, “Ok listen, I have no fire in my pen, or my laptop, and I have no idea what to write!” Still looking up he continued, “I need something fresh and inspiring!” “It’s a new year!” “Is there any word from heaven?”
The Sky hesitated and sighed, but finally said, “Just be yourself, the one I’ve created.” “I’ve told you this before.” It was a soft rebuke but a rebuke nonetheless. Not receiving these words, the blogger shook his head no and said, “I knew it!” “You’re no help….”
He started to leave, and walked down the path he had walked, so many times before. The Sky spoke once more, “Listen, why don’t you learn how to relax for Pete’s sake……..it is a holiday after all.”
And with that, the somewhat older blogger did relax. The Sky had once more taught him an important lesson. He still didn’t know what to write, but at least he now had a peace about it. Later, he realized that he did have something to write, he just hadn’t done it yet.
