Bring out your inner child

Today, I ate ice-cream in the rain and ran about in the mud on the edge of a cliff. Yes, it appears that unleashing your inner child can be hazardous, but also an enlightening exercise to free us from worry and unleash our creativity. Find out exactly how over at the3six5 blog, 365 days, 365 points of view.

This is a great project run by Daniel Honigman and Len Kendall. Every day for 365 days, a different person writes a 365-word reflection entry about their experiences that day. Each post relates to what’s happening in the world that day and how it relates to them, creating a unique patchwork of posts that together create a snapshot of the entire year. A beautiful coming together of people all across the world, sharing humanity and insight.

  1. I liked your post! I'm intrigued that you write to the Archbishop! However, I spend quite a lot of time writing to Presidents and Supreme Leaders of all sorts of countries, so perhaps I should be less inquisitive…

  2. Thanks Chloe! This is the first time I've written to Rowan. Wanted to catch him before he steps down. I can't say I've written to any Presidents. I'm a bit of pessimist and not convinced that anyone really reads them. Am I wrong? Do you find that they do?

  3. Rarely. I've written for Amnesty International since I was about 17. So they send me details of human rights abuses and the addresses to write to and I write. Usually stuff like asking officials to commute death sentences, release political prisoners, investigate the murders of human rights activists etc. I usually have 3 or 4 to do each month and probably get 1 or 2 replies a year! Can be disheartening, but I know that it does work (even if they don't reply personally, the volume of letters they receive shows them the world is watching) and it really does save lives, so that keeps me going!

  4. Yeah the volume is what matters. I've only done a few thing like that and it was a long time that I wrote for Amnesty international. You may have inspired me to take it up again! : )

  5. Do it do it do it! Heh heh. I started just because I wanted to. But since becoming a writer I've been glad to know that I am at least using my writing skills for one unselfish thing! I'm a firm believer in using what God's given even if it's not the ability to raise people for the dead or faith heal! There are other ways to help too, of course. I write to a woman on the USA prison penpal scheme.

Got something to say?
