For me, writing is what “makes my day”. It is a part of me that will never be completely finished.
Each time I write an article my thoughts expand, my mind concentrates and I feel “free” to share my most intimate thoughts with someone. As one writer put it, “writing to me is the same as the ability to walk, talk, and think.” It gives the reader “bits of my soul, my heart, my mind and my spirit”. It is a consummate part of me.
This world is full of any subject one can write about. There is so much more information out there to research and, in doing so, I learn more about the world. The nightly news gives us a “snapshot” of what is going on in the world at the moment. To fully understand why it is happening, one must delve into more of the subject ourselves.
History gives us many lessons as to the outcome of the actions taken today that will affect the future. Learning of countries where millions are starving puts us to action to get involved in helping to feed them. Learning millions are being murdered by their own government gets us involved to speak out against dictators and wars and, to help those who survive. We are all capable of helping any of them if we open our hearts to the pain and suffering in this world. It is easy to watch the news and then forget about it because we don’t have to deal with those life and death situations. However, there are people right here in America who need help providing a home for their families, feeding them, getting them medical help, transportation, etc. so, the need is also here. It’s up to each of us to do what we can to help humankind.
I will not be writing for a while as life has given me a health problem that needs attention. God willing, it won’t be too long before I can get back to the pleasure of writing once again.
