six-word story play

Hello dear Joyfueller,
Want to play for joy? I had a lovely conversation with customer service person at my cell phone company today. Somehow we found ourselves talking about writing. He told me he used to write. I told him I went through a very long period where I didn’t write at all, a drought that was a difficult time for me.
 
My new friend helped my original problem, then at the end of our call I said to him, “Hey, not sure if you want to write again, but if you do perhaps this might be a fun thing for you to try…” then I went on to tell him about Ernest Hemingway’s love of six-word stories. Hemingway is renowned for many things including inventing these pithy little word packets.
 
(Although I love Ernie, I’m thinking early humans probably invented them, round the fire one night… if we were truly earnest about it  😉 )
Anyway I shared one I wrote with my new friend–a deeply personal six-word story that took me 7 years to live. Six-word stories invite a great opportunity to write and capture an essence of something meaningful to you, and maybe to others too.
 
Why not have a go this weekend? What 6-word story do you have to tell? Perhaps write about something to do with life, your history/herstory? or your week, or today? or your imaginary rhinoceros? Want to play? If so, share your story in comments, maybe share where you are in our world too?!  You can post on social media with a new hashtag just for our community #mediaforjoyfuel. I’d love to feature your story(ies) in a future post!
 
(Oh…. about my new phone company friend? He was curious and he said he was going to try it. He missed writing.)

Have a Joyfuelled weekend dear love. I look forward to reading your stories. xoxo

Who Who on the Joyfuel Kindcast Season Two

Dear Joyfuellers,

When the Joyfuel ecourse came out in 2014 I acted on impulse and instinct and pieced together an interview series featuring people who are committed to living their lives infused by the essences of joy, kindness and creativity. The series the JOYFUEL KINDCAST operated on the currency of LOVE necessitating.experimentation with different FREE recording platforms and modalities. The result was the first season of the Joyfuel Kindcast. I am deeply grateful to everyone who committed their time, thoughts  and lives to share with me and listeners in our little video series.

I learned so much in the process; about creativity, music, kindness, art, and also about the act of making something as meaningful as possible with very limited resources… learning about good enough for LOVE and GIFT. Together we made and shared something very special.

Season TWO of the Joyfuel Kindcast is now gestating. For our new season I pass the producer’s role to you! WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO HEAR ON THE NEXT SEASON OF JOYFUEL KINDCAST?  We want to feature your neighbors, teachers, friends—perhaps even YOU–on the program. We are looking for YOUTH and adults from all over our world. Please take a moment to think and fill out this form to submit your nomination for the Joyfuel Kindcast. (Be sure to hit “Submit” at the bottom of the page.)

Thank you SO MUCH for your ideas and suggestions!

In Joy,

Discovering Our Gifts (video)

Hello Dearhearts!

Last year so many people cheered me on and backed my attendance at the Appalachian State Expressive Arts Therapy Institute, in North Carolina. Thank you so very much! Because of kindness and generosity –and my husband’s holding of the fort   — I was given time and space to deepen my own heART practice, to study Joanna Macy’s work Active Hope–among the many other en spirited offerings of the Institute.

Infused by my heARTfull mountain experience I wrote and gave a talk about our super powers. In this 7 minute excerpt I talk about the power of “Our Gifts” . I share this with the prayer that we each remember and discover the powerful gifts we have to live and give!

Because of you, I am.

Thank you to UU Peace Fellowship of Raleigh for the opportunity to share my heART in this talk. And I hold deep gratitude always to my many teachers including Joanna Macy and those attending and creating the Appalachian State Expressive Art Institute.

marvelous joy

rilke joyfuel

Just less than TWO days til our LIVE adventure begins. JOYFUEL Rising!!!! Please check out the rest of this site and see if this speaks and sparks to you. It would be my blessing to share this journey with you and welcome you to the Joyfuel adventure.

WHAT IS JOYFUeL?

JOYFUeL invites  you to consider a multitude of different things you can do to activate your JOY.

JOYFUeL is not a lecture series, nor does it profess all the answers.

JOYFUeL poses questions and ideas intended to help reveal habits, patterns or thoughts that leak the JOY from our daily experience.

JOYFUeL is for ADULTS to be enjoyed alone or shared with a friend.

JOYFUeL is for CHILDREN probably most engaging for kiddos ages 8 and up– to promote awareness of the power we all have to consciously choose activities that become part of our daily routines.

Read previous Joyfuelers’ experiences here.

Will you join me for the joy of it? Yes? Let’s go on a JOY-fueled adventure together –from the convenience of our own homes 🙂

18 days til Joyfuel

find joy

Dear Human,

How are you? How much JOY is in your being, right now? On a scale of 1 to 10, where is your Joyfuel tank gauge? (1 being fumes, 10 being your tank floweth over.) Take a moment … think about it. Feel around it.

No matter where you sense your JOY to be, I believe you and I BOTH have a greater capacity for JOY, much deeper and greater JOY than we are typically aware of.

It is this very thought that has fueled me–driven me like a doolally loo–to create Joyfuel, an ecourse filled with the possibility of joy exploration…a journey to the heights of our JOY potential, using creativity, kindness, nature, awareness and … well …  of course JOY!

Would you like to go on this adventure to find greater JOY in simple being alive? Yes? Well, please do consider yourself personally invited to JOYFUEL. (an ecourse a la my heart and soul because it had to be born!)

In this homeplay adventure (aka ecourse) I’ll share ideas, thoughts, stories, a few interviews, ooooh and my heartwork with you… all with the intention to inspire you to consider your JOY and what we might be able to do to stoke our Joy flames to greater heights.

Sound good? Want to join me? If so, click here to register. We will begin this journey on Friday October 9th. Simply register and then check your email (especially starting october 9th). Then you can read, pause, consider, play. … all for your JOY, at your leisure.

You are worth it.  You deserve it. For JOY’s sake!

What are you thinking? Clicky here if you’d like to know more. Or comment below… let’s connect!

with my <3 for your JOY,
becky
