Because there’s a message, a yearning, a calling.
Because there is truth bursting to be said, threatening to make my head implode if I don’t share it NOW.
Because the flow of words and images becomes a tidal wave that sweeps my core and makes my skin tingle.
Because it’s more important to put your voice out there than to stay silent yet crying out for expression.
I write to nourish my soul and free my spirit.
You write to speak your truth and share your passion.
We write to voice our desires and meet our destinies.
We write to teach each other and learn from one another; to enrich our existence and touch our hearts; to feel with clarity pure and true.
We write to run with the urge to create, to fashion, to explore: to travel the cosmos and drink the light that is ours for the taking.
Because the thoughts will keep circling until I commit them to screen and paper, until I forget about what people will say and focus on what I say.
I choose clarity.
I choose light.
I choose the phoenix reborn again and again as the words of my soul flow forth from my core and out through my fingertips.
I choose connection, interaction, community.
I choose to weave my share into the universal tapestry: to add my voice to the annals of humanity; to sing the beauty that is soul-fed expression.
I choose to share my truth and my yearning, my hope and my journey, my purpose and my vision.
Won’t you join me?
