Where is your earth, your sky and your sea…

Where is your earth, your sky and your sea…

 

They say that your heart is located at the point where your thoughts intersect with your ambition.

 

Is this world large enough for all of us?  I would love to think so, especially if we create our own earth, sky and sea.

 

My thoughts are often obstreperous.  My mind races about like a five year old at a playground not knowing which apparatus to tackle next.

 

Like that five year old, I must touch, climb, and use every apparatus, until I am exhausted and must be hauled home for a shower.

 

As writers we create earths, we create the sky and create the sea for our characters to mingle, interact and to say their lines in their grand glory.

 

This, Dear Writers and Dear Readers is what it means to be real.

You write it, you create it and someone will enjoy it.

“After all, they knew that to be real each had

To find for himself, his earth, his sky, his sea.

-Wallace Stevens
