Learn to listen

Today I bumped into this quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne:

“Reading is damn hard writing. “

Indeed, it´s not easy business to put words to life, but once you have learned to listen when Life whispers, writing is bliss.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    Pardon me, but I don’t get the sense of “Reading is damn hard writing. “

      The reader just reads, often not being aware of the struggle the writer goes through to put together the words.

        Okay. I clearly understand what You say. But I’m still suspicious if this is what Hawthorne wanted to express. But maybe it’s a question of language.

        Trust me on that 🙂 That´s what he means 🙂

        Oki doki. It doesn’t matter anyway since I know exactly what You mean.
