Wholly Stange and New

(This is part of a 30-day writing challenge)

When good is near you, when you have life in yourself, it is not by any known or accustomed way; you shall not discern the foot-prints of any other; you shall not see the face of man; you shall not hear any name;—— the way, the thought, the good, shall be wholly strange and new. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Can you remember a moment in your life when you had life in yourself and it was wholly strange and new? Can you remember the moment when you stopped walking a path of someone else, and started cutting your own?

Write about that moment. And if you haven’t experienced it yet, let the miracle play out in your mind’s eye and write about that moment in your future.

(Author: Bridget Pilloud)

 

I know the question isn’t meant literally “a moment in your life when you had life in yourself and it was wholly strange and new” but I am still going to answer with my time birthing another human being.  I can’t thing of anything more strange and new and real in my life than that.
