Today I was thinking about the process of creativity and being connected to the pool of ideas. Sometimes I am connected sometimes I am not , even if I try hard. One way to solve this problem for me is being surrounded by people who are connected or through their creations. And yes, meditation. I remembered about this method described by Natalie Goldberg who wrote an amazing book about creative writing through the Zen practice. So before writing or painting or whatever try to walk consciously feeling different textures... should help to tune your brain to the right wave #barefoot#barefootpath#sensory#conciouswalking#conciousness#zen#nataliegoldberg#writingdownthebones

We are a part of everything. When we understand this, we see that we are not writing, but everything is writing through us.
Revisiting this classic lately. With all the instructions to put pen to paper and not censor, it seems the fast-moving mobile visual-heavy setting of instagram is practically anti-writing. I’m curious to play with some writing here for future posts. Will see how it goes!
I’ve been enjoying a little quiet creativity lately. Daily blogging has been amazing for my own personal clarity on this journey of tapping into the next right step for me on my path.
I write daily over at
The posts are no longer than an Instagram post... so why not do it right here on Instagram? .
My focus: building an asset
I remind my clients all the time that social media is a tool/ channel, but it’s not yours. And it can change at any time.
I’ve been calling my energy back, calling my guidance in, and I’ve been building something for myself. Something to be proud of... away from the algorithms and the validation temptation.
These are tiny little notes to self. Sixty second bites of clarity. Reminders of what is possible.
I thought I’d share in case it serves you too.
That feeling when the poetry you preordered months ago (@ladybookmad) FINALLY arrives and you are so.freaking.excited. about it that you accidentally spend a whole afternoon thinking about your work/heart/life as a writer and all that you have written and the future of your business and the future of your writing and you're super in your head about it.
And it's not that pretty in there.
AND THEN, out of nowhere, a friend tells you that she's been reading your book lately. She really loves your book and when she's reading it she feels like she's having a conversation with you. This reminds you that "I want it to feel like the reader and I are sitting across the table from one another in a coffee shop, drinking tea, talking about space healing" is the only instruction you gave your publisher at the beginning of the project.
And you recognize the universe’s gentle nudge to keep writing. For the love of all things glittery, KEEP WRITING. So you get out the book about writing that you’re reading and the notebook you write in and get back to your daily writing practice. Again. So yeah, buy #poetry and #keepwriting . .
Stealing a bit of time to work on my #poetry#ecourse this morning before my husband (who is currently tending the kiddos) goes to work. I'm halfway done with it (!!!!!) and can't wait to share it with you. 🖊✨❤️ #startingmoments
I met my wife when we were in college.
Nine years after, we had our first son.
Two years after, we had our first daughter.
Without them I would always feel alone.
I fell in love with music first,
And then I fell in love with reading,
Then I fell in love with writing,
Changing this would leave me bleeding.
I know this poem is not my best
I'm using poor rhymes and easy metrics
Sometimes I think my worst enemy
Is to care too much about aesthetics.
But I know it's actually self-doubt,
And I encourage you to risk and dive in,
It's hard not to criticize yourself all the time,
But changing this would change everything.

It's #creativethursday ! And today's prompt on @AnnKroeker's 52 CREATIVE WRITING PROMPTS is "Changing these three things would change everything”. I felt like writing a poem, it's been a while since I wrote my last one, but it felt good!
Now, two questions for you:
(1) HOW ARE YOU STIMULATING YOUR CREATIVITY TODAY?
(2) WHAT ARE YOUR THREE THINGS THAT WOULD CHANGE EVERYTHING?
One more thing, “The best test of a piece is over time. If you’re not sure of something, put it away for a while. Look at it six months later.” and “Don’t worry if you come back six months later and the piece you weren’t sure of turns out to be terrible. The good parts are already decomposing in your compost pile. Something good will come out. Have patience.”
This is from WRITING DOWN THE BONES by Nathalie Goldberg. You should definitely reading it if your having doubts about your writing.

My friend @willovanbaak mailed this book to me—it was a surprise. She knows I’m going through my journals in hopes of shaping them into a narrative, and she told me about this book. And here it is.
I’ve known Willo since our elementary school days in Michigan, but we lost touch for a number of years. When we finally reconnected, we had both gone through major life changes and were able to bear witness for one another.
I thought about that tonight as I listened to David Whyte read about friendship on the @onbeing episode “Poetry from the On Being Gathering.” To know and be known by another is the gift of friendship, and it is powerful.
In David’s own words: “The ultimate touchstone of friendship is witness, the privilege of having been seen by someone and the equal privilege of being granted the sight of the essence of another, to have walked with them and to have believed in them, and sometimes just to have accompanied them for however brief a span, on a journey impossible to accomplish alone.”

Zamanında bir öykümde söyle yazmışım :
Delilerin dünyasında akıllı olmakla , akıllıların dünyasında deli olmak arasındaki çelişki yıktı duvarlarımı. Deli olmak seçimimdi , akıllı olmak doğanın getirisi. Doğunun ve batının kötü bir sentezi olarak imzamı attım doğaya. Bir tutku seçtim kendime , kendimden başka herkesin tutkusu gölgem oldu. Ben kimim , ne için yaşıyorum , kimin için çalışıyorum , ne yerim , ne giyerim? Bilmiyorum. Kendime dair tahminlerim; adım Titer, güzel sever, sadık kalır, bolca söver.... #photooftheday#photogram#photoshoot#travelphotography#travelgram#travelers
