because my pen is a magnet for the elusive bits of myself that resist my knowing them. When I can’t speak my heart, the pen translates it into something tangible that I can release.
I write to be released of the burden of lifelong questions. I am a soul philosopher, a spiritual alchemist. I take my job very seriously, sometimes too seriously.
I write to lift the weight — to flex my zen muscles and have a good laugh when it feels too heavy. Because I know — deep down, I know.
I write to express what I know and to question what I think. Thoughts can hitch-hike into the shadowy depths of the psyche and pollinate the heart with doubt.
I write to be mindful of the things I think. Because a lifelong search for the “I” that I am is best travelled in ink.
