“I love words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them.” — Anne Rice
I very well could have been the author of this quote. It’s true, even though I can’t sing well, I love words. I love to sing them, if you know me at all you know I love to speak them and am head over heals in love with the joy I get from writing them. That’s what this blog is all about. It calms me to write. It brings me peace, it makes sense of things that don’t make sense at first and it gives me an outlet to think. As Isaac Asimov said, “Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.”
Maybe I’m good at writing, maybe I’m not, either way, I recommend to anyone to write down their feelings, their thoughts, their emotions. Just try it once. See how you feel. Get yourself a journal and keep it all to yourself. It can become an extension of you that only you know about. I’d like to think you will find pleasure and comfort in this type of mental or emotional release. It’s like words hug me, like this picture, comforting my soul and all that I believe and feel; taking me to a place where there is no judgement and no consequences to your feelings and your thoughts. A place where it is okay not to be okay.
I have linked this picture to an awesome Jessie J song that reminds me of the last thing I just wrote. This is an awesome version from a New York subway before she made it. Check it out!
