The complete poem (from my book, As Easy as Breathing) is included at the beginning, with an introduction. A stanza of the poem tops each writing page with ample space underneath for your reflections and revelations. Use this guide however seems right to you. You may begin at the beginning and sequentially work through the poem, or you might open to any line that speaks to you right then. In preparation, you can sit quietly, deeply breathing for a few minutes or read the lines aloud. To get your pen moving you can copy the lines at the top of the page or dive directly into your own writing. Be patient. Trust. Be kind to yourself. Poetry or prose, let the words flow, no concerns about spelling or punctuation. This is just for you.
Later you can decide if you want to share any part of this. There is no one right way, only what you choose, what seems right in the moment. Write, draw, color, doodle, decorate with stickers, if you like. Do what feels good to you. Make this book your own. Now begin...
With love, Margaret Dubay Mikus
