Writing is more than a way of recording knowledge:  it is discovery, exploration, creation.

Sometimes I need a container for the unspeakable, or a moment breathed in for later examination; a poem is all that will answer.  Other times a complex topic cries out for analysis, synthesis and exploration, and I turn to an essay.  Or a voice wakes me in the night and won’t let go until the story is told.   Or tears are coming so fast that only laughter will heal.  Other times . . . .

There is no knowing what lies around the next curve, or even whether I will reach it.  But writing offers unparalleled opportunities to make the most of the journey while it lasts.  Come along — walk a little way with me along the road.  Who knows what we’ll find?
