In My Write Mind
Hold fast to dreams
I look to Langston, who was in his thirties when he penned Dreams, to remind me that no matter how old you are, you can still hold fast, not let go. He relished, as I do now, the opportunity to tell the stories of his people "in ways that reflected their actual culture, including both their suffering and their love of music, laughter and language itself." That shared dream makes him my main inspiration--but not my only one.
And that, to me, is what this blog is all about. So fitting is the title IN MY WRITE MIND, as it transmits my thoughts straight to your eyes. So thank you, Mr. Morris and Mr. Hughes, for making me Mr. Dreamer.
Thank you for making me believe that dreaming is all write.

I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear. (Joan Didion)
