“Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom.” ~Søren Kierkegaard
There are so many dizzying moments in life, times (like now) when we feel that we’ve been knocked off our equilibrium. I tend to find, looking back on those times with distance and perspective, that they were also moments of grace when I softened, opened, grew. A great book to read (or re-read) by the way, is Pema Chodron’s When Things Fall Apart. She speaks of these moments of grace like particles up in the air, still weightless, still defying gravity. Eventually they will return to the ground, and eventually we will be “grounded” again, but sometimes in the dizziness is where we find breakthrough.
Therefore, today’s prompt is:
Write a story using only one sentence.
Any other punctuation fine as long as there is only one official period.
In love and solidarity!
