Unfurl A New Day

To unfurl is a classy, multi-sensory way to “announce” or “debut” something new. So by next week, I’m unfurling my new website. It will have my name, but all content–meditations, mini-breaks, creativity and writing prompts, will unfurl under the umbrella “Meditate Write Now.” 1. Meditate: Connect to the deep wellspring of creativity within you, unfurl and unfetter your imagination, and let go of clutter-y thoughts. 2. Write whatever words come. Notice the spaces between the words. Let your sentences breathe.  3. Now is the presence of the present. Take five minutes to meditate, write, and create your day in words and spaces, with focus and intention. I can’t wait to unfurl my website. Web design, etc. is by the amazing Norah Daey, Virtual Assistant, at www. helpfromthecloud.net.


About sheilaklewis

As a writing coach, meditation teacher, writer, and academic tutor, I'm passionate about words and the silent spaces between words. In this context, I run book clubs and writers' groups where the resonance of carefully crafted words can spark readers and writers to share their own stories. Connecting through conversation; making memories matter; embracing editing and revision, and imaginative wordplay are some solo and collective outcomes. I came to what I call my "Meditate Write Now" practice after years of art-making, writing grants, curriculum, children's stories, and more. Meditation kept my mind from meandering too far off point and also led me to write from the still point within. May our paths cross in creative journeys across time and internet connections! Other details: My husband and I are the parents of two amazing sons and one daughter-in-law, and smitten grandparents of Micah (born December, 2013). I don't drive, and have lived in the same apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, for too long.
