When the eldest of my five grandbabies asked me, Mima, why do you write?
Here’s what I told her.
I write because
Words, like honey, flow from my imagination and into my fingers, begging me to slide them onto paper or screen.
Words whisper their rightness to be heard — this one over here, and that one before or after — asking me to give them life.
Words create new worlds where I get to arrange the forests and streams, the wildflowers and mountains… and then hang the moonbeams, stars, and the sun where it gives me the most pleasure.
I write because I love words as they leap tall buildings in a single bound, as they allow me to see the golden night eyes of the jungle, or blow a kiss from my email to yours when I can’t be there to feel your smooth cheek beneath my kiss.
I write to offer my mind, heart, and spirit up to the dance of words, then spin them out to light inspirational fires for the world.
I write because it stirs the love in my heart… as do you, my most precious grandchild.
