For lack of words.

August 30, 2011 § 2 Comments

I’ve been trying to write for weeks now, and I just sit in front of the screen — without anything to say.

Now, that I’ve entered this new, odd world, inundated by science, I feel exhausted by the end of the day. It takes work to refocus the way I view the world — to see it with the eyes of a scientist. And then when I find the time to reflect on what I have learned, what I have felt, what I have sensed, my thoughts fall away.

On my desktop sits a quotation that serves as a daily reminder of what I need to do. It comes from one of the greatest thinking men in history, and it says, “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

I agree, so I’m going to cut the shit and start thinking again.

    I saw this today, and wanted to root you on – I’m in the exact same place with my own writing. Your writing rocks, Milna, and it gives me strength 🙂

    Keep it up!

  • Nihal, you don’t understand how much this means to me — coming from you. You’re an amazingly thoughtful writer, friend, human being, etc. etc. And I can’t wait to see more from you! Please know that I’m rooting you on too.

    Also, a friend of mine bought an art course on CourseHorse. Get some!
