freelance journalist and writer in Boston, Massachusetts
As a writer, one of the best quotes I've ever come across, and which probably describes most accurately my passion for writing is (unintentionally) from a brilliant woman and prolific writer: Hanna Arendt.
"What is important for me is to understand. For me, writing is a matter of seeking this understanding... As long as I have succeeded in thinking something through, I am personally quite satisfied. If I then succeed in expressing my thought process adequately in writing, that satisfies me also."
My blog is a personal space where I save everything I've written and considered important at some point in my life.
I understand eventually I will hate some pieces, rewrite others and perhaps love very few, but I know my limits and understand that the best way to move forward in a good direction is to learn from the mistakes we've made in the past; and that includes my own texts.
