Henry Miller, in Tropic of Capricorn, wrote,
Whether I die today or tomorrow is of no importance to me, never has been, but that today even, after years of effort, I cannot say what I think and feel – that bothers me, that rankles.
I really feel that. Especially this last line, “I cannot say what I think and feel.”
Sometimes I have trouble drawing out my ideas and sharing them with the world. In my head my beliefs appear concrete, but when I push them onto the paper they look childish, and less refined.
Lately I’ve been wondering: how well do I believe my own beliefs?
Inspired by this Henry Miller quote, my intention for this year is to publish more of my thoughts here on the blog. Over time, I too hope to “give up the ghost.”
