Visions — Hildegard von Bingen

My pen is a lever which, in proportion as the near end stirs me further within, the further end reaches to a greater depth in the reader… ~ Thoreau, Journal, 4 August 1841

A written word is the choicest of relics. It is something at once more intimate with us and more universal than any other work of art. It is the work of art nearest to life itself… ~ Thoreau, Walden




The impulse to create is within us all. For writers, it is an inevitable journey of transformation.
