Monday Discovery: Sorrygnat, World Citizen

Esther’s book: You Carry the Heavy Stuff

Yesterday, Esther Bradley-DeTally’s Sorrygnat, World Citizen, subtitled “Esther Bradley-DeTally’s whimsical writing website,” posted a moving, lovely, and yes, whimsical-but-at-the-same-time-serious piece called “why i write.”

The why is something we writers ask ourselves at one time or another. Sometimes we have clear answers; sometimes not. But Esther says it far better than I ever could.

Here’s a taste of “why i write”:

Why do I write?  Like now, when the dishes sit orphaned in the kitchen sink because I, the washer, am typing, sharing, breathing, living, putting off the inevitable, because once a long time ago, I was so hurt, I couldn’t breathe.

Thanks, Esther, for sharing your “whys” with us. Go have a taste of Sorrygnat. You’ll be glad you did.
