I loved this blog by Dennis Palumbo. I believe that he is right, that Ray Bradbury is right, that all writing is a reflection of who we are.
I believe that writing is a lungs-about-to-burst experience of something deep inside us struggling to surface, as if a swimmer too long underwater. That something is the self. It is who we are, certainly. But perhaps it is more than that.
Perhaps it is who we long to be.
“Centurion” is no exception. In earlier posts I have shared what is autobiographical. In later posts I will continue to share. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the blog and that it is encouraging to those of you who are writers making your way to the surface, to the freshness of open air, to the warmth of a welcoming sun, and to the glistening wonder of who you truly, uniquely, and remarkably are.
