For me, writing is like thinking on paper.
A form of reflection.
A way to learn about life and all that it encompasses.
Writing is an extension of my being, an expression of the moment.
I write to clear up doubts.
I write to ease my pain.
I write to unload and unfold and undo.
And I sometimes just write to get away from the voice in my head, because writing is a brilliant distraction.
Writing opens up my world, to me.
It shows what I am worried about, or really happy with, proud of, or struggling with.
It’s not an activity to create something: it IS the creating.
It is like coaching myself, it is therapy, teaching, and working out.
A form of trust that pays off in pure clarity.
Life is always writing me.
An expression of its endless love.
