it is a far far better thing that i do than I have ever done it is a far far better rest that i go to than i have ever known.
The Charles Dickens quote, “Far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. It is a paradisematic country in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.” Is one of my favorites. It perfectly describes how I feel about reading. When I am transported to another world through the power of words, it is as if I am tasting something delicious for the first time. The experience is so rich and full that I can almost taste the words themselves.
This quote also perfectly encapsulates the way that I feel about writing. When I am able to access the power of words and use them to create something new, it is as if I am opening up a whole new world for myself and for others. The potential for what can be created is endless, and the process of creating is just as delicious as consuming. I am so grateful to have found my passion in writing and to be able to share my love of language with others through my work.
