We interrupt the news to say: the heart is an organ of fire. What do you love? What draws you to it? Tell that story and hang on to the truth.
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday with several questions carefully chosen to help you collect stories in the oral tradition or spark your own writing. Either way, you’ll say, “Thanks for the memories.”
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin wrote: “Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”
At the end of the day the heart is an organ of fire. It’s so easy to forget especially when we are awash in news about all that has gone and will continue to go horrifically wrong. In the middle of all this insanity perhaps we are getting an unexpected blessing: the chance to see each other in love. If I didn’t focus on beauty and love I would be lost. So perhaps this prompt is a way to rescue myself.
Story Prompt: What 3 things do you love? And how is it you are drawn to the things you love? Share your story with someone or something: your journal, your animal companion, the trees in the woods. All that matters is speaking what you love and holding fast to it like a knot in the rope.
NOTE: Pierre Teilhard de Chardin SJ was a widely influential French idealist philosopher and Jesuit priest who trained as a paleontologist and geologist and took part in the discovery of the Peking Man.
This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories – stay for the magic.
