"If you want to write, you can. Fear stops most people from writing. NOT a lack of talent. Whatever that is. Who am i? What right do I have to speak? Who will listen to me if i do? You're a human being. With a unique story to tell. And you have every right. If you speak with passion, many of us will listen. We need stories to live. All of us. We live by story. Yours enlarges the circle".   - Richard Rhodes

I have to read this every day. I have so many stories in my head I dont know that I will ever get them on paper. And even If i did get them on paper, who would want to read them? Will they just sit on a shelf? Maybe i'll pull them off every once in a while just to reflect? Who knows. What I DO know is that I have to do this for myself. I might not tell people about my works. I might not even tell my close friends or family, but just throw it out into the world for random strangers to read. Maybe they'll like it. Maybe they won't. But at least i'll know that I've tried. And thats really what counts.
