Why I Write
I love telling stories and of course listening to them too. I feel storytelling is an essential part of what it means to be human. We have an inherent need to share our human experience as well as the magnificent creations of our imagination. A good story is like a drink of cool water after a long thirst. It quenches a yearning within the soul. Writing for me is therefore a spiritual outlet which brings me, at least temporarily, in communion with my higher self. Each time words come to my mind seemingly from thin air I am reminded of the infinite source that flows through all creation.
