Why I Write

I feel things.

I imagine things.

I wonder about things.

Sometimes I write pure feelings.

Sometimes I write because I feel lonely.

Sometimes I make up stories around what I'm feeling.

Sometimes I write because I want to tell someone something.

Sometimes I write because I need to express what I'm feeling or thinking.

Sometimes I write because I want to find out what I’m thinking or feeling.

Touche.
Yup, writing sets me a degree apart from what I feel or think, like having a counsellor refelcting my thoughts, but without the cost.
Very deep.

Thank you for that observation.
Sometimes it's the only way I can get to my thoughts.

yes to all the above about writing. I also write to see how the words giggle and clash, how they bump and cuddle and laugh together, making puddles of meaning in their paths...

nice blog.

What a great comment. I love the music of the language. I wish I had thought to include that.

Thank you, that is so cool.

I write to rise
I accepted the falls
Time to go beyond
Writing becomes a therapy of life

And adds to its beauty.

Thank you for your poetry.

For me, that's really the only reason.
Your fountain pen in the pic?
It's a Waterman Phileas...
I think I actually have one.
I'll be back tomorrow.
Thanks for a great night of reading.

later on,
