Writing Voice

In your natural way of producing words there is a sound, a texture, a rhythm--a voice--which is the main source of power in your writing. I don't know how it works, but this voice is the force that will make a reader listen to you, the energy that drives the meaning through his thick skull.

Fire At Your Heels

Fire At Your Heels

Moses - Michelangelo Buonarroti.  Marble sculpture. "And we know, when Moses was told, in the way he was told, "Take off your shoes!" He grew pale from that simple reminder of fire in the dusty earth. He never recovered his complicated way of loving again and was free to love in the same way he felt the fire licking at his heels loved him."-David Whyte

This could have been... But for the Grace of God it was not. #thanksJesus
I survived my life at Furman (no fault of the school), just my time of life. I remain forever grateful.
