The Real Hunger Games

In this article, author Avril Somerville reasserts her responsibility as a writer and steward of spiritual gifts which helps others in their quest for meaning.

I am confident that this is a most fitting way to return to this blog, Life As An Art Form, after such a lengthy hiatus. I have been quietly rebelling against the need for the constant sharing of online content for the sake of industry standards for an author or artist of any kind. The sum of these standards seems to be a consuming and unattainable moving target, that once you become too focused on, would be intractable.

You Rock, Fellow Rockstars!


Thank You!

By the looks of it, at least according to WordPress stats, it’s been a great year for writing! As I can see it, there’s still much that remains unwritten. However, I am confident that the epiphanies and inspiration will continue to unfold, and that the pen will follow suit. I am trusting the discernment that has been placed in me to know when and what to write. I rest firmly in the knowledge that this gift is one to be used wisely and authentically – to uplift, demonstrate, empathize, mobilize, discover, and heal – and one not to be taken lightly.

I’m amazed in the freedom that I find when I write! There is a remarkable fluidity and a sense of empowerment and engagement that I feel when I am at my best writing self. At those times, Spirit calls me to my highest self, requiring me to be fully transparent. I look forward to more of these moments, and the ongoing metamorphosis.  I especially look forward to taking this journey with you.

In the meantime, I would like to thank you for a fabulous 2011! I am touched that some of the material written here touched you enough to reflect, rejoice, pause for a moment, and sometimes comment. I’ve appreciated all of it, as it increased my connection and intimacy with fellow bloggers and readers. This connection sometimes made all the difference, and let me know that what was poured into me in the first place was much bigger than me! Whoa!! 🙂

The Universe reciprocated in kind, and for that, and you, I am ever grateFULL!  In the meantime, write I shall! 🙂
