The reason I write

The last few days I’ve been thinking a lot about why I write my blog. I’ve given much thought as to whether it’s because of an incessant need to be heard or get my voice out. No doubt there are days when that’s the case. There are times when I want to be heard by others for whom I have a lot of respect. Please forgive me for my vanity.

After deep introspection I concluded that the reason I write is because it forces me to learn. I love learning! I crave the feeling I get when I discover a new author or find new information about some topic. The more I learn the more I realize how little I know, which drives me to learn more. I love the quote by Eric Hoffer: “In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.” I never want to be ‘learned,’ but ever learning.
