I’ve been participating in a book club discussion with some bloggy friends. A few of us writerly types get together over here every Monday to discuss Julia Cameron’s The Right to Write: An Invitation and Initiation into the Writing Life. It has been fun and inspiring, and the joy I feel in the knowledge that I am working toward improving something I really care about is tangible. It makes me want to write.
I mention this because I believe the same is true for intimacy. When we pay attention to what is going on in our sex lives, when we seek to grow in that part of our marriage…it can be very exciting.
As I was settling in to the first chapter of The Right to Write, I ran across a quote that brought to mind all my friends at Adding Zest.
The first trick, the one I am practicing now, is to just start where you are…
I think Julia Cameron is on to something. About more than just writing, I mean. Every journey begins where we are.
And so, as we begin our Spice It Up journey, we will be starting with little ‘ol you, right where you are.
