Monday Inspiration: The Wise Natalie Goldberg

Photo taken by me, this past fall, at West Head, Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, near Sydney, Australia. Quotation is from the always inspirational book Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg, a must-have for your bookshelf of writing inspiration. When you are feeling like what you have to say isn't important--remember that it is all our moments, all our details, all our selves that are, collectively, of critical importance. It's like one of those heinously complicated, thousand-piece jigsaw puzzles: even if it's just one single teeny piece of the sky missing, the whole scene will feel incomplete.

You are that piece. Go fill in the space with words!
