Writing through the Pain of Our Times

20180707_164603

Writing through pain and tragedy is one of the most difficult things a writer can face. How much do we say or not say?

I like you, feel things deeply. And the last week has often been horrific, hasn’t it?

It would be easy for me to rant against far right extremists. They have caused so much suffering and pain.

And yet right now I am grieving, and standing with the people of Pittsburg, and the Jewish community there. I simply can’t write a poem about nature at the moment.

May the One who made us all, comfort all who are grieving.

Amen.

The flowers are for those that lost loved ones today.

This is too important of a time to be silent. I will be writing more about this historic time in the future.

We must each do what we can to make a difference.

Peace to each one.

  1. Yes you are right, Nico! It’s hard to know what to say or do, but using our talents to inspire the best that we can is our gift to the world, and you do that for those of us who can’t find the words. I thank you for that, dear friend!

      1. Peace to you too. It is indeed a most terruble travedy and outrage. Such awful things happening nowadays
