Sunday afternoon, my two daughters went shopping with their mother. After finishing dealing with the lawn in the garden and clean up my self, the adventure in cyberspace gets its turn again.
After reading some emails, while listening to Pink Floyd, I began to calm myself to choose an idea to write something for this challenge. Suddenly one question arose followed by its friends, in droves. I do not know where it came from, but it was an interesting question. Why am I writing? And why am I faithful to those themes? What about other people? What are the benefits to me, and my writing benefits to others?
That’s how the questions burst into my mind and have kept me silent for a quite long time. There are many reasons and answers flowing and clinging to them, but one thing is clear, I just want to write, I just want to say something, either to whom, whether read or not, I do not really care. I just want to write.
The discussion in mind eventually invited other speakers and this is what Anthony De Mello says:
“Some people write to make a living; others to share their insights or raise questions that will haunt their readers; others yet to understand their very souls. None of these will last. That distinction belongs to those who write it because they do not write they would burst … These writers give expression to the divine – no matter what they write about. “
How about you?
Hey guys, if you interested in this challenge, here are the rules and guidelines to join.
