Inspirational writing for Mind, Body, Spirit.
What inspires me to write? Thought-provoking, heart-expanding, game-changing words that express our highest ideals.
I write broadly about the essence of life, the state of the world, and things spiritual. It cannot go unnoticed by most people at this point that we are on the brink of a paradigm shift. The old ways of thinking, being, and doing are just not working for us anymore. I am exploring that in all of my writing.
I invite you to check out my newest blog, Hart Haiku: Fast takeaway Inspirations.
My haikus do not entirely follow the Japanese tradition, although I do sometimes write about nature. They also have titles, which is very nontraditional. Many are accompanied by thought-provoking quotes, and links to interesting articles.
And I will continue my older SusanLHart blog on this site, which will transition to author news, and writing about some of my personal inspirations and experiences.
Who am I? An excerpt from Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” may best say it:
“I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
At midlife I did the unthinkable, selling all material possessions and setting out with my partner on a journey of world exploration and self-discovery. (You might be surprised how much these go hand-in-hand.) Travel has changed me, and what I have learned from it strongly influences my writing. As you read my Stories, Articles, and Poetry, you will find it woven through them like a fine tapestry. This has been a spiritual journey, not simply one of seeing new places.
What’s coming up? Later this year I will be launching my first solo fiction book. I’m excited!
Teaser: It’s about a young woman who goes on an improbable spiritual journey, and what she learns about life and herself. There’s quite a lot of me in her, and that’s all I will say for now…
Thanks for reading, Susan
