Writing for me is what frees the soul. The sharing, the open heart, the freedom to express one's self which appears to lead to an opening of one's self. But what I love the most is the writer who can express what I can't through writing. Like when I have that light bulb moment because of what an artist has written. I think this person's gets it and I feel connect and not so alone. Maybe that is why reading for me is such a comfort. mmmm....I like this idea.
