This is a simple Braintenance post by Douglas E. Castle of TNNWC. It should give you a new look at why we write. Please read it with your mind opened for expansionary purposes .....
By Douglas E. Castle
We write to remember things; to tell others things; to give tangible, transferable substance to out thoughts.
We even write to read our own words, as if validating our reality, our real existence.
But ultimately, and its most serious form and toward its most solemn purposes, writing is an act of surrender. An act of surrender to the reality that we are mere mortals, with lives short and uncertain --
And if we are compelled to somehow transcend our own inevitable deaths through the written word, the poem or the song which lives long beyond us, in immortality and in memoriam.
Every writing is a part of its writer, and perhaps, even an epitaph fully ready upon shudderingly short notice.
