The Invisible

F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “You don’t write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say.”

There is personal writing and there is intellectual writing. When I write blogs, I tend to write about what I find intellectually stimulating and do so once a week. Once a month I write a newsletter.

What’s the difference? My newsletter is a more personal communication to my readers. In some, I write about the craft of writing. In others, I write about what I experience while writing. That might not seem very exciting, but it is.

Everything of real significance that happens in the world today is invisible, and that is true in so many ways.

Answer this: Do we ever get the real story about anything? If we don’t, then where is it? It’s hidden. It’s invisible. What about aliens? Invisible. Angels? God? Dark matter? Another’s dreams? Nope, they’re invisible. How about love? How about hate?

All that is of consequence is invisible. The real world, the one that truly matters, happens in the mind and in the heart.

Action, in and of itself, means nothing. Consider a trillion billion molecules moving at impossible speeds inside a jar? Without our opinion and the subtlety of our intellect to give it meaning, action has no real significance. It’s like watching somebody type. Dull.

What I can see is the magic, the freedom, and the world behind my eyes and in my heart. It isn’t easy to put into words, but I try. It’s what I do.

You can find out more about that world in my newsletter. If you haven’t already signed up for it, please do.

I hope you like it.
