Why Write?

Why write? Why do I feel drawn and compelled to put my thoughts to page? There is something in the deliberate process of selecting words and massaging sentences that allows me to taste and chew my thinking. The tidbits of thought in my focus become richer and more memorable in the process, each word adds spice and texture. Once committed to page, experience become less ephemeral,  and like a favorite dish, can be savored again and again.
