Some people ask why I’m a writer. I’m retired. I could be eating bonbons or learning how to play golf or whatever--why writing?
I write to connect with others. John Steinbeck said in his essay “In Awe of Words,”
We are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome. One of our ancient methods is to tell a story begging the listener to say — and to feel — ”Yes, that’s the way it is, or at least that’s the way I feel it. You’re not as alone as you thought.”
My goal is to connect with the reader so neither of us feels alone.
May you enjoy your own adventures with books. Thanks for stopping by!
