Why I Write



"When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy" ~ Rumi

I write to share the insights of my soul and hope that someday somewhere someone will feel that river of joy move in them.

I write because I can connect to other worlds and live my dreams through my words.

I write so that I can chronicle my life and perhaps someday I will come back to my posts and live some moments again.

But most of all I write because when I do, I feel that river of joy moving in me.

    1. Thanks Ava - I think if we didn't like writing we just wouldn't be able to do it.

  4. Lovely and so true!
    I loved the line - "I write because I can connect to other worlds and live my dreams through my words." could relate very well to what you have said.

  5. Suzy you had me at Rumi. Honestly he is one of my favourites and after that you had me at Suzy who is also fast catching up on my favourite reads I believe :D :D

    Reading you sends a river of joy through us.. :)

  6. I love Rumi and the way you have connected your reasons to write with that great quote by Rumi, is just wonderful.

    I guess the reasons why we write overlap as well as interlink with each other's.

    And yes, as Richa has mentioned, reading you sends a river of joy through us.. :)

  8. My dear Suzy,... loved your reasons and it is so true, writing records thoughts on a minuscule level, trivial and sundry... writing keeps them alive and when we come back to it, and remember the feelings are just inexplainable...

    Love
