After over a year of this blog and the last several months of struggling to write because I often wonder , “Why!?”… I share this for my artist friends, and for anyone who also wonders why.
Whether you embrace the concept of God or not…
“If you write for God you will reach many men and bring them joy.
If you write for men–you may make some money and you may give someone a little joy and you may make a noise in the world, for a little while.
If you write for yourself, you can read what you yourself have written and after ten minutes you will be so disgusted that you will wish that you were dead.”
–Thomas Merton, Seeds of Contemplation
