You know that expression, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”? I thought about it a lot while writing this post. I used to think that it meant people had different tastes, and that one person’s art was another person’s ugly graffiti. And that may still be true, but to me, that expression now means that what you feel on the inside determines how you see things on the outside. I’ve been to some stunning places in the world – the volcanoes of Guatemala, ocean reefs off the coast of Honduras, the Rocky mountains in my own country – but I frequently couldn’t revel in their beauty because of the ugly mess inside myself. When I was writing Blaze, my life seemed a mess from the outside. I was alone with two kids and living in poverty, and yet what I ‘saw’ were the scenes of my book flashing vividly across the screen of my mind. I was filled with excitement, and everything around me – the drab white walls, the apartments buildings across the street, my own sweet children – they all bloomed with the beauty of my inner joy. Now that I’m blessed with this bucolic view, I can truly enjoy it thanks to the peace I’ve found within. And let me tell you, it was long time coming!
