You know from reading earlier blogs, that I obviously love the idea of catharsis. I’ve not only seen it work in others, but love the technique to clean out my own darkness. I was doing some research into Catharsis and came across several articles that said the Catharsis, before it was identified as way to clear the mind through writing, painting, drawing, photography etc., was considered conceptual. The concept was of light being a purifier. What a great concept! Think of how the sun bring up our mood and light brightens a room; it makes sense that the concept of light opening up our thoughts and soul would be identified as catharsis.
What do you do for catharsis? Writing is so cathartic; it helps us cleanse our minds, sharpen our focus, and clears the way for better things, so this is what I’m thinking:
Would you like to guest blog? You can be totally anonymous. The only requirements would be: that you trust me, (lol. not too much to ask?), I need to know who the author is as I can’t publish something on my blog that I’m not responsible for, that you only tell your own story, we can only share what we know for sure, that your writing is not sexually explicit.
If you want to publish under your name, I would certainly love to give you the credit, other than Anonymous 1, Anonymous 2, etc. 🙂 You could write a story, a poem, a song… This is your shot, to say what you need to say. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org, so if you are interested, e-mail me that you are interested or your “catharsis.” If I don’t respond back within a couple of days, e-mail me again. I don’t want you to get lost in my junk file!
I don’t have clue what to expect, but want you to have the chance to let in the light. Be brave!
