The writer gives himself to his reader. One can only write from his own experience, which is certainly reflected in the finished product. The greatest beauty of writing is it shares one’s unique views with those who read them. Writing represents conviction to one’s beliefs and the courage to express and openly share those beliefs in a form which can seemingly last forever. People who write are admirable because they make that conscious decision to bare themselves to the world.
The intertwining processes of reading and writing are among the most intimate acts performed by the human family. Even physical lovers aren’t always privy to the deepest thoughts of one another.
Writing can be a brutalizing chore and writing can be a most uplifting and joyous experience. There are rare and wonderful periods during the writing process when the writer achieves complete synchronicity between receiving thought in a cerebrally stimulating natural flow, then conveying that thought with all its subtleties and intricacies to written word. Being “in the groove” like this is surely rare ... and completely exhilarating. These rare times define when writers are truly artists and creative beings. These are times when writers cease to consciously think. These are times when writers are truly one with their higher selves, and these times facilitate the finest act of writing … in its highest and purest form.
Only by mutual understanding can our species begin to understand one another, heal, then press forward to a future which is boundless in its physical, mental, and spiritual growth. Especially in today’s technologically progressive societies, the act of one person conveying what lies within his mind and heart is necessary, unique, and not duplicable by any artificial means. Therefore, the act of writing is invaluable to the progression of all humankind.
Revealing one’s soul to others ... the most precious gift of all
from Kauai to Paris ... and all places between
