Of course anyone who has read The Chronicles of Narnia will know what this place is. When moving from one world to another Digory Kirke and Polly Plummer find themselves first of all in The Wood Between The Worlds, a peaceful, restful place where they can relax and just be.
I always think of this time between Christmas and New Year as ‘The Wood Between The Worlds’. The Christmas festivities are over and we are waiting for New Year to arrive. It’s a time to relax after the bustle of Christmas preparations and the big day itself, and the frivolity that comes with New Year celebrations.
You may think to yourselves, what has this got to do with blogging? Well, there always seems to me to be a place ‘between’ in blogging. There is a space between having a thought for a blog post and actually producing the post and publishing it. There is a space between the activity of creating something and the excited business of launching it. I call this ‘The Wood Between The Worlds’ and am often found in this place relaxing between one task and another, awaiting the hustle and bustle of the next piece of work that has to be done.
You should always take time to relax in ‘The Wood Between The Worlds’. Don’t just pass through without noticing, make time to rest in that peaceful place.
