One of the things I love about reading and writing is where it can take you. I love that words have wings. They fly us outside our usual boundaries into the atmosphere, the stratosphere, to new places, some which exist and some which exist only in the imagination of the writer and the reader.
As writers, we can be anyone we want to, experience whatever we can imagine and learn from it as much as we want to extract. We can never imagine where those words will fly, who may read them and what they might do to the lives of others. What a privilege that is!
As readers, we can live more lives than anyone has time for, experience things we never imagined possible, and learn more than we ever expect. As a lifetime learner, I love this. And, it’s all because of words, the most wonderful world of words.
