I sometimes get asked why I feel the need to share my writings, photography and adventure stories on my blog. Some people believe those of us who share this kind of work are doing it purely to get attention, credit, or to boost our ego. This is not always true, there are many reasons for sharing; If I get a comment like, “Thank you, those words were just what I needed to hear today, perfect timing,” I know the Universe was at work in some way, and those words helped someone… and that is enough.
I’ve recently been going through some old journals, and here is something I wrote about 10-years ago, and I thought I’d share it:
For an artist to paint or write, and not share the beauty of their work with others,
almost makes the work pointless.
It is the sharing,
and the delight in seeing someone smile,
that makes it worthwhile.
An artist does not always paint for himself,
Sometimes she writes for others.
