This week, I have two quotes that I hope will speak to you. Enjoy!

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”  ~ Rumi

“The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.”  ~ Gustave Flaubert

If you are a writer, or would be writer, you must read this post. I share it with you because I identify with it strongly. I identify with it because it eloquently states my reason for writing. In my case, I began this personal journey blog as a form of self-expression and without any illusions that I would attract the masses. I wanted a platform to write and nothing more. I hasten to add that I appreciate and am blessed by each person who honors me by following this blog. However, as a born and raised New Orleanian would say, that’s lagniappe (For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it means ‘an extra bonus.’). The bottom line is that I love to write, and if you do too, this post is for you.
