speaking of Anna Quindlen -

Here is a column by Anna Quindlen on the importance of writing the details of our lives for ourselves, for our family and friends.  Write in your journal today or begin one.   This will inspire you in doing so.  You can google Newsweek, then find Anna Quindlen and her column Write for Your Life, January 22, 2006.


Here is a quote from the article that rings true to me.

     As the novelist Don DeLillo once said, "Writing is a form of personal freedom. It frees us from the mass identity we see in the making all around us. In the end, writers will write not to be outlaw heroes of some underculture but mainly to save themselves, to survive as individuals."

Find happiness in writing the details of your lives today.  Joy and simmering calls!!
