Although we seldom talk about it in these terms, writing is a means of prayer. It connects us to the invisible world. It gives us a gate for the other world to talk to us, whether we call it the subconscious, the unconscious, the superconscious, the imagination or the muse. Writing gives us a place to welcome more than the rational. It opens the door to inspiration.
Writing is a spiritual housekeeper. Writing sets things straight, giving us a sense of our true priorities.
