“Truth is always stranger than fiction. We craft fiction to match our sense of how things ought to be, but truth cannot be crafted. Truth is, and truth has a way of astonishing us to our knees. Reminding us, that the universe does not exist to fulfill our expectations. Because we are imperfect beings who are self-blinded to the truth of the world’s stunning complexity, we shave reality to paper thin theories and ideologies that we can easily grasp – and we call them truths. But the truth of a sea in all it’s immensity cannot be embodied in one tidewashed pebble.”


To be an author,
A poet, a writer,
A journalist, a songwriter,
Any job that requires writing,
You need to learn the art of words.

You need to sew the ink,
onto the cloth of paper,
weaving your needle, your pen,
between the blue lines,
creating the quilt.

Fairy tales are true, not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten.

Very simple, and yet I like it very much. I found that I liked the second bit better than the first, for I loved your description of 'the art of words.' I suppose you really understand writing.
