I hope to write something profound, or funny, or moving, or otherwise special, every time I sit down and touch the pen to paper. A person wants to believe their life has meant something.
Of course our lives have meaning, because our life touches other people’s life life all the time. We choose whether it’s a gentle touch or a battering ram.
I suggest gentle. What is the point of bringing more violence and pain into the world?
Life is such a precious and fragile thing. Respect and honor life, and preserve it when you can.
