WRITES MOUNTAIN

Mmmmmm.....Writes Mountain
Sounds omnious
Have I been and what did I see
I've been invited but haven't taken the climb
I stand at the base gazing up with trepidation and awe
The climb must be made that I know
It's such an arduous journey
I must prepare my mind and body

Fear does not stop me
I wonder am I good enough
Can I honestly sit at the table at the top of the mountain with those I have come to admire
Do I have the words that will grant me access to a seat at the table
Will my words touch their hearts and minds

Words race through my mind
Questions crowd the corners of my brain
Stay at the base or climb
Climb or stay at the base
The base offers security
The climb offers uncertainty

Security is over rated
So I climb
I reach the top
Writes Mountain
I am greeted with love, support and inspiration
I am led to the writers table
I see my chair--comfy cozy and made for me
I sit in my chair
I open my journal and see a note
"WE ALL HAVE A DECISION OF STAY AT THE BASE OR CLIMB TO THE TOP....WELCOME HOME"
