“What is not given is lost.” –Indian proverb
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” ― Mark Twain
Ralph Waldo Emerson believed that light shines through us, that we are nothing and the light is all. This light binds and symbolizes humanity. We are born with a gift we need to receive as well as give: sharing light through love, service, creativity, and community.
Technology empowers writers and readers to share light with more people in more ways and places faster and more easily than ever. Nothing can stop the right book or idea. Depriving the world of light that only you can give is a loss to those you love, your community, and the world. It also prevents you from achieving your potential. Illuminating others illuminates you.
On the world’s turbulent seas of discord, suffering, and uncertainty, your work can be the beacon of a lighthouse helping guide those adrift to safety. The human family craves the stories, love, hope, beauty, wisdom, guidance, humanity, inspiration, information, and spirit of community writing provides. So for the sake of others and yourself, share the light you wish to see in the world.
