“What moves me most in literature is the writer who says, ‘Here I stood! I loved the world enough to write it all down.'”
Sara Ruhl, author and playwright
An iPad commercial puts it this way: ” … The powerful play goes on – and you, you may contribute a verse” (quote is, I think, from Walt Whitman).
I love this. To think that I may actually participate in the play somehow is exciting, and if I can do so with my writing, that’s thrilling and even better.
Whatever the play is – comic, tragic, or anything in between – our words make a difference. Whether we agree or disagree, our words make a difference. The world needs them.
The world needs you, needs us, to love it enough to write it all down.
