on writing...

To be a good writer, you not only have to write a great deal but you have to care. You do not have to have a complicated moral philosophy. But a writer always tries, I think, to be a part of the solution, to understand a little about life and to pass this on.

Anne Lamott
from Bird by Bird

I used to write every day. Not so much any more. Perhaps I will find the groove again one of these days. Now that I might know a little bit about life, maybe I have something to pass on.

P.S. - I love Anne Lamott!

Oh yes, you do have something to pass on. It is our loss when you do not share your words with us. Still, I would not encourage you to share what you are not ready to share, only to write every day, if you can, if only for yourself.
