why write?

the art form
is not incorruptible
but it has proved dominant in the sphere of the perpetuation of influence

and the artist, in some attempt to preserve a fragment of self, material, or whatever else
chooses to write

often to his plight

    Thank you Heath for such a beautiful compliment. I’m afraid I’m very behind in catching to everyone’s blog posts, my husband has just retired so it’s a bit of juggling the balls these days. But when I do get the chance to see your work, it’s very rewarding. Have a good rest of the week.

    Waves across the ocean
    A whisper in the crowd

    To read and know our pain

    PS Great write and a nice angle on the subject

  8. And yet the writer worries not of ‘whys’ or ‘plights’…
