What a question. There are no doubt hundreds of reasons why people decide to write a blog. Today, however, I am just going to write a short ditty about the reason why I write. Actually it’s not technically a ditty, but even so.
I wrote about my reasons at the start,
thinking about giving up alcohol and fulfilling a resolution.
I now relish the idea of self-discovery,
thinking about what makes me and other people tick.
A legitimate reason for research,
finding, searching, learning, growing.
Ideas leap into my head,
like a beautiful, graceful, springbok leaping and racing across the savannah, chased by a determined cheetah.
Its therapeutic to write things down,
givng your mind a thorough spring clean.
Its now fulfilling a passion and I find it cleansing for my soul.
