When I write, I release myself from the torment of bottled emotions and anxious mental analyzing.
When I write, my world becomes larger, more intriguing, full of meaning that permeates beyond my limitations of reality.
When I write, I show my true self and my deepest wisdom arises.
When I write, I fulfill my potential as an artist, as a human being, as I am.
When I write, I feel the breath of life emerge from within, even if I begin as though a zombie, sucked spiritless from the monotonous drone of daily responsibility.
When I write, my precious dreams awaken my heart and soul to beat joyfully once again.
When I write, I am enveloped in love, connected by a spiritual thread to a source of unending compassion.
