"I am hearing poetry when awake, dreaming poetry when asleep, breathing poetry with each breath, I am living in a poem."

Lifted by Ink



Herotomost over at Real Toads challenged us to write something profound. I was at a loss. The best I could do was write about the profound changes writing has made in my life. Life, Love and the Pursuit of a Really Profound Thought.

Yes. The process of writing may at first bring pain, but the end result will truly "set you free".

this is why we write. what you're talking about.

I feel exactly the same, but wouldn't be able to express it so well.

Was talking to a good friend about this last night and he said: "as soon as something bad has been written down, it stays in the memory forever."
We all react differently to life, don't we.

nice.

I couldn't get profound but I did write of something I love. perhaps there's profundity in that?

Marian said...

yes, a really profound, and true, thought.

I like this Susie--it pinpoints what keeps us writing, winning, at lest some of the time, that struggle for connection to something deeper that spans the disconnection of our lives, that sews us together not just with others, but with ourselves.

Susie, you have spoken for all of us ... beautiful.

Beautiful, Susie, and I so enjoy the way you place your bits of wisdom on beautiful backgrounds. A feast for the senses.

I reviewed this on Facebook as you know and I jut wanted to reiterate how in love I am with the idea that writing can be a tool to over overcoming personal, global, financial, whatever problems the old faces. Sometimes quicker with personal tuff than other stuff....but wow, this is one powerful thought. I hope each and everyone of us writes it down for as long as we live. The world deserves it.
