I'm glad this has 279 or 280 comments! You deserve it, Emily. So true. You haiku is absolutely beautiful and inspiring, and so very true. This is one of the reasons why I write too. You have such a talent, to be able to put power into few words. You are a wonderful person and writer. You are very talented. Thank you for sharing this! ^_^

Wow, this is really sweet.  Incredibly relatible, so close to perfect.  I loved the comparison to to world being a novel, reminding me of this huge book, with individual pages of humanities stories.  Brilliant job.

It's great to imagine one huge book full on writing. I wonder if I have a page yet.
