An Excuse to Write
Friday, February 04, 2005
I want to give you
something I've made

some words on a page - as if
to say "Here are some blue beads"

or, "Here's a bright red leaf I found on
the sidewalk" (because

to find is to choose and choice
is made)
Denise Levertov

My friend asked me why people blog and I didn't do a very good job of articulating my feelings. This is just so well put and I've felt like this at times.
"You write because you need to write, or because you hope someone will listen, or because writing will mend something broken inside you, or bring something back to life-" - Jay Makintosh (from Blackberry Wine) I need to write. I need to rearrange and refine sentences. I want to ponder over how to put that thought in words; so that it fits in the scheme of things just so. Words can create magic and I want to get lost in them for some part of each day's life.
