What is a Writer?

A writer is a magician that can make us forget our real life dramas to enter into another world of her describing.

A writer is a midwife who encourages you to give birth to your greater self by sharing a myriad of stories, similar or different, from your very own.

A writer is a witch that stirs the cauldron of our unconscious with the spoon of images to summon forth a new recipe for our minds.

A writer is a yogi who holds a pose of words that allows us to feel the energy of life coursing through the channels of our consciousness.

A writer is an herbalist, knowing which words to pick at the proper time, drying them to make them potent, and then mixing them together in the right proportion to cure what ails your soul.
