A long time ago, I asked a writer why he wrote. He just said, “Something new. Something I never thought of before.”
You know something is there; you just don’t know what it is yet. But you’ll launch it. It’s your ship. You’ll move it out of port.
The world has come to a place where many people now believe they, as individuals, don’t move anything. The only motion is of the group. This is a fallacy. It doesn’t take a village.
I think of writers who moved me in the past. It wasn’t a matter of agreeing with them. It was a matter of hearing a voice that let me know there was another person whose urge to express himself in the world was paramount. Someone was climbing a mountain. Someone was flying. Someone was dreaming. Someone had stopped waiting. Someone was at the helm. He wasn’t plotting his course according to standards that had already been laid down. He was navigating according to an interior roll of the dice. The dice weren’t random. They were tuned to an invisible desire.
A book. The mystery of opening a book. Looking at the first page. How does it begin? Does it ignite a fire?
A book can be a life.
A painting can be a life.
A single thought can give birth to a new life.
From that moment, everything is different.
