Breaking the Silence

“To choose to write is to reject silence.” Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who is a Nigerian writer. 

I like the idea for people to understand what is deep inside my soul, what drives me, what brings me joy and what does not. For me, silence is not an option.

There are times I can do that with greater clarity through fiction. It’s the most surprising part of dipping my toe into those waters.

At this point, thank God, I am immersed in those waters completely in the joy of trying to make my novelette a thing of beauty, hoping, ultimately you and I know that is what it’s has become.


“Beauty appears when something is completely and absolutely and openly itself.” Deena Metzger, an American writer.

As to someone as opposed to something, we each are more appealing as on life’s journey we become more authentic. We need in the worst of moments under the most pressure to grow, not groan, to be real. At times that can be an enormous challenge for me, as, it may be for you.

May you and I, by the grace of God, get better and better at overcoming and changing in a good way. It’s a beautiful thing
