Today I am thankful for friends and family who are constantly harping on me to keep writing. One of the greatest bits of encouragement I got was from a friend who told me that my writing was organic, imbued with nature. I had never really perceived that slant in my writing before, but now that it's been mentioned, I see it everywhere in these posts.
It's always been my hope that what I write inspires self-reflection in my readers. When I share childhood memories or random stories from my day or whatever I happen to be thinking at the moment, I try to write it in such a way that it reminds people to examine their own memories and stories and thoughts. By looking for meaning in what I experience, and writing what I discover, perhaps my readers will be able to inspired to do the same.
