“I write because to write a new sentence, let alone a new poem, is to cross the threshold into both a larger existence and a profound mystery.” Poet and essayist, Jane Hirshfield
Although I am not in this award- winning writer’s league, the writing process is the same for me. A good analogy is watching Jeopardy, answering a question and not having the vaguest inkling of where that response came from.
It is just something you get lost in. That is, at best, a deep immersion. It is a place of serenity and by the grace of God, shalom.
