Meaningful Living in the Hashtag Age

 

Slide1

Writers write or that’s what ‘they’ say.

But do ‘they’ understand how difficult it is to put your thoughts on paper; to open yourself to the scrutiny of everyone’s opinion?

Do ‘they’ know the awkwardness of baring your soul to people who may not appreciate the inner workings of your mind; who do not see the world the way you do or taste the bitter sweetness of life with a palate filled with words?

Do ‘they’ know the nagging pain of a story, song or poetic verse stuck in the hollow confines of your chest begging to be freed; begging to be released in the world like ink spilling from a pen?

Do ‘they’ know how hard it is to constrain a soul consumed with imagery, and intimately engaged in a desperate love affair with the written word?

Writers must write.
Like singers must sing.
Like artists must create.
Like dancers must dance.
Like lovers must love.

Do ‘they’ know? Do ‘they’ truly understand?
