I sit here in silence writing this small volume of words, and it seems to me the most public thing I ever have done.
– Richard Rodriquez
Five years ago I met WordPress. I wanted to do this public thing – public. Early this month I read Terry Tempest William’s essay “Why I Write.” Yesterday I read this post. And now, I only have today.
I write to pen down thoughts. I write to set free thoughts… I write to meet myself. I write to meet other selves… I write the whispering voices’ stories. I write to still the loud voices … I write because I’m afraid if I keep all bottled up some will explode. I write to keep explosives hidden… I write to find out what it is to write.
And, this public thing I’m doing now… I’m doing – hoping to find resonance.
