Writing is a distraction for me. It takes me to places unknown that fulfill my need for intellectual stimulus, emotional release, and a soothing of the breaks and bruises of the day.

    In a society that has become so centered in "self", the moments of our own insignificance can be so humbling... and freeing.

  • Very good perspective. We are very small in the scheme of things
