Interviews with inspirational writer and artist Laurel D. Rund

It’s All About Hope and Infinite Possibilities


This summer, at the ADEC conference, I was interviewed by Open to Hope about my book and the journey I have been on since my husband Marty passed away.  The opportunities which have come my way during this journey have been infinite because I remain “open to hope.”  Laurel

After All These Years

After all these years, I have knocked at my inner child’s door

and asked her to come out to play!

Although she was stored away and hushed into silence

for a very long time, she came out with a smile on her face.

We decide to venture out, to live life fully,

to blossom and become one.

When my inner child dances,

my feet move to a newfound rhythm.

When she steps on a crack, I step outside my bounds.

When she giggles, I laugh whole-heartedly and out loud.

When she loves, I become tender and open.

And, when my inner child sings from her heart,

I sing from my soul.

The child within me has been transformed.

As I hold her hand in mine, so have I.
