ONE More Thing

Posted on May 7, 2014 at 1:35 PM

Perhaps you have said it recently,  "I can't handle one more thing."

Your days are already full to bursting of delightful opportunities, accepted obligations and tasks that don't really ring a bell but need to be done. And yet, there is always an invitation to "one more thing."

It's ironic and ever true - the busier I am, the busier I get. My best ideas knock on my door when I perceive I have the least amount of time for them. I've learned to take a strategic deep breath, open the door, and invite the idea in to sit awhile. Have a cuppa something.  Then I learn if the idea is just passing through or if it is here to stay.

I've been "quote bombing" for years. Quietly.  Without fanfare. Word-leaves.  Left behind in random or unexpected (but always legal, i.e. not windshields) spots.  With a sweet little prayer/hope that just the right person who needs that particular set of words will find them. At just the right time.  Now I begin work on a book honoring the role of words in our lives, BY THEIR WORDS.  And the Quote Bombing project becomes more important to me than ever.

I've begun a community on facebook.  https://www.facebook.com/quotebombing   ; There I will provide downloads of uplifting quotes. My own and as I gather important words from others, I will share them, as well.  In this community we will share our stealth with pictures. And, if there are stories of discovery or delight to tell, we will tell and share. 

Join me?  Quote bombs are one of the few kinds of bombs I wholeheartedly endorse.
