Every time I write it is an opportunity to learn something. An opportunity to notice something. An opportunity to engage. That is the gift of writing, at least for me, it is a moment to deliberate an otherwise somewhat unnoticed day.
Writing seems like a way of building a monument to an idea. Without creating this way of remembrance it would have just passed back into the dark. But once you’ve written down your day, extracted the ingredients: the feelings, the events, the interactions– it becomes something to reflect upon and build on moving forward.
