We Are All Writers

 

Not limited to mere paper or word processor, we write in countless ways.

We write in the sky, and we write in the sand - a broken stick, our stylus and the beach, our blank page.

We etch our names on icy windowpanes and carve our initials on trees.

We paint words on walls and scribble big ideas on small crumpled napkins. 

On the palm of our hand we pen a reminder or the telephone number of our new best friend. 

 

We write love letters in sidewalk chalk for all the world to see and X's and O's for tic tac toe; 

Even hopscotch squares can be poetry. 

To write is to feel, to express, to reveal. 

We cannot help ourselves; this is what we do.  

We are all writers.

 

And then there are our letters....

Undeniably, our greatest literary creations because they contain on their pages all of our marvelous doings, drama, and dreams.  Taken together, they are the autobiography we never knew we'd written and the journaling we did with family, lovers and friends.
