Question Answered!

The conversation goes something like this, while watching a sporting event on TV with a good friend.

My Friend: Dude you need to get back on the horse and start writing!

Me: But what is there to say?

My Friend: What is there to say?!?! What isn't there to say? Everyone has something to say out there!

Me: Exactly! What am I going to say that is any different? There are so many experts out there… You really think people are going to take the time to listen to one more?

Just then on the TV we hear the voice of Robin Williams and turn our heads to listen to him say…
"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. 

To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?" 

Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"

Question Answered!

It is good to be back.

Health and Happiness!
