A-Z Challenge, Challenges by Sarah

A-Z Challenge 2021

I must confess, I find myself surprised to be here again.

After a gruelling 2020 in all aspects, my blog has become collateral damage; an unwilling victim of my lack of time, stress and general absence of motivation, or more so, inspiration.

Yet, as I received the A-Z updates and promos over the month of March, I felt a pull. Like a small thread tugging on my conscience and awakening the need to write again.

And here we are.

I missed the official theme reveal, and up until yesterday, was suffering a block with what my theme should be. I would like to say that my theme in fact, came to reveal itself to me.

As I drove back from Dragonboat training, I observed the sun setting over the distant Brindabella Ranges. The mountains were a deep violet; jaggedly interrupting a perfect umber skyline. I realised then that I often experience junctures like these – a spiritual connection; a moment where I can stand in awe of the beauty of the world around me.

And so, the “Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence” theme was born out of my darkened mind.

I anticipate this A-Z may be a little different to my usual musing-style posts, and that you may experience a combination of media and descriptive writing. But sometimes, you just can’t put into words, the exquisite loveliness that surrounds us…

Dolores Abernathy, Westworld : “Some people choose to see the ugliness in this world. The disarray. I choose to see the beauty.”

(More to come on the background of wording of this theme. Stay tuned for “A”)
