“Go into yourself. Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depths of your heart; confess to yourself whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.
By the way, this takes work, a great deal of work, to get to a place where you allow yourself to embrace the above. -tM
I have always liked both the truth and the sentiment of this quote. Full of things that have never been; in sentiment it is realistically hopeful and in truth it speaks to the life that is about to unfold, neither positive or negative, but one that will be and just is.
It makes no promises, the rest is up to us, the way we maneuver and navigate through a new mindset (because that's what New Year's really are about, a new mindset and a way to mark the passing of time).
So here is to being on the brink of a new year, may this be the beginning of anything that you want. -tM
