Words- simple and sweet… and equally chaotic and complex.
Not to quote Albus Dumbledore, but let me quote Albus Dumbledore…
“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic.”
I write to allow my deepest thoughts and feelings to bleed onto pages, gifting them a new home. Sometimes just on blank papers or documents, only to never be seen again and sometimes, if I am lucky, into the hearts of others.
I equally consume words to fill me back up. I look at what others have bled onto their own pages, and I marvel, I gawk. It is magic to read words from someone else’s heart and to feel as if they have lived in your soul for a very long time. A homecoming, together, but apart.
Words don’t necessarily fix anything, but they provide company to the fixing.
I could never include ALL of my favorites- for the list would go on indefinitely. But here are a few that sparked my interest to even begin sharing my writing and who inspire me to continue.
Below are some of my favorite accounts/people whose words fill me up on the regular- so that I can then, in turn, pour.
So, let’s hear it. Who inspires you to follow your passion?
