Hi there. This blog is growing one reader at a time. I created it in November 2012. It is a repository of personal thoughts for public consumption. I will add posts slowly as I learn this “craft” called blogging. Come with me on this journey, will you? We will both get something out of this experience.
I write because “writing is simply thinking on paper.” [On Writing Well, 30th Anniversary Edition: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction by William Zinsser] and I am always, always, always thinking. To make sense of the swirling storm of thoughts and feelings in my head, I feel compelled to put it in text. So, I write.
“Writing doesn’t merely capture what’s already inside us, but in the very act of writing, we enable our heads and hearts to take the next step, then two, then ten. It has a crystalizing effect. ”
