“The skill of writing is to create a context in which other people can think.”
— Edwin Schlossberg
For many of us this thought encapsulates the underlying reason for writing lifestories: To pour our own hearts and thoughts onto paper as a context for others to think and examine their own lives, beliefs and choices.
What more could we hope for? Admiration? Praise? Gratitude? Or simply to be remembered? There are no wrong or poor reasons for writing. Writing is its own reward, and all else is icing on the cake. For me, stimulating thought in others is the ultimate icing.
And thus I blog. How sweet it is to have such an opportunity and outlet.
