open invitation no. 55: Stop

Sometimes writers stop one thing to write.

What can you stop doing in order to make time and space to write?

Go stop it.


And share your post with the #sosmagic community.

*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.

PS—I started a Facebook Group for the #sosmagic community. Join here.


Open your blog and write a post. Just write.

    1. You wrote something so true – so what I want for my family – It was good to see the whole person, rather than just a head via zoom. I’m glad you had a chance to have a small reunion.

    1. When I read your writing – I feel like we could be colleagues, next door neighbors, friends. I share your sentiments so often that I wonder how two people thousands of miles away, different ages, different experiences can look at the world the same way. I am so glad your daughter and spring are ready to rescue you. This is hard word we do – it is joyful and hard. I repeat like a mantra something my mother would always end our conversations with – BE GOOD TO YOURSELF.


  1. Well, I stopped commenting… something I love, and decided to finish my post. My favorite subject— my daughter. XO
