RESONATE: to relate harmoniously : strike a chord
Every once in awhile I write something and it sticks in my mind, it strikes a chord deep inside. These are the things that resonate with me.
The title One Sure Chord came from a conversation I was having with a friend and it stuck in my mind. It's the idea of that one thing that resonates with you and won't let go. For me, my One Sure Chord is writing. I have tried to avoid it, but I keep coming back to it. It is the way I have learned to process my thinking. and sometimes that process is slow and clunky but it works for me. I want to share my One Sure Chord with you. Resonance is the ability to evoke images, memories and/or emotions and this is one of my goals with the blog. To resonate with you so that you will echo back and share your story.
I hope this will be about more than just me and what I think. I want to know what your One Sure Chord is. What is the thing or idea that you can't escape. The thing that keeps pursuing you, no matter how fast or far you run in the opposite direction. The thing that draws you in, that makes you feel right with the world. You might think this is about your passion and maybe you could call it that, it is the thing that you were made to do. The One Sure Chord that resonates in and through you for the benefit of yourself and others.
I have a friend who asked me what I wish and I wrote an answer. When I went back later and read my answer, this is what jumped off the page.
I’m tired of religion. I want relationship. I’m tired of safe, I want EPIC adventure. I’m tired of repetition. I want the unknown. I’m tired of dying. I want to live.
For me… This blog is a step toward that end. My One Sure Chord, the thing that resonates in and through me are the ideas that I share through writing. I am not going to limit those ideas to one “category” but I will tag posts so you can find the things you are interested in and skip the things you aren't. I do hope you will join me and chat with me and tell me about what is resonating in and through you.
