The Other Half


Sometimes, the urge to write is so strong. That’s only half of it. What is strong is the urge to write and then share the words with others.

Sometimes, it feels like what I write has been said many times before, yet I still find I must write it.

Sometimes, I wonder about this urge, about why it is necessary. No, that’s not quite right. Make that imperative. It is imperative that I write and that I share it.

Sometimes, the words feel meaningless, as if they are just words.

Sometimes, when the words come out, they seem pleasant, powerful. And, I know there is something else there.

“Half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it so that the other half may reach you.” ~Kahlil Gibran

The muse has her way with me. I type as she whispers, as she infuses something else into the work.

Who knows why we are moved to express what we do and how we do it? Who knows?

There is more to it than meets the eye. There is more than simply that which can be seen, noted, measured.
