Words Connect Us

. Christmas Eve always makes me think of people who are lonely, without friends and family to share the holiday with. I wish I could gather them all up and make them not so lonely. I wish I could do more. But I was thinking, that as a writer, we do something remarkable, whenever we write something, or read a work from another author. We connect. And even though I may be reading, or writing, alone--I am connecting to the people who are reading my book, and the people whose books I am reading. It is amazing and profound, really, how books connect us. And that, I think, is what the human experience is all about. Connecting. Learning and growing. And ultimately, loving. Merry Christmas, everyone. And I wish you all much success in the New Year.
