I love this quote from Ruth: “One of the things that drives me as a writer (and a person) is questions. I’m constantly questioning, reflecting, and reconsidering. This is true for my writing life across genres and topics. Questions drive me. When questions become fierce wonderings, I enter a significant place as a writer.”
Questions tickle my senses with the potential for new discoveries, new truths.
Some come like continents;
some come like silt.
Some bite and sting, burrowing into ones skin;
Some soothe and quiet a restless soul.
Some quests require sturdy packs
and dusty trails,
maps and gear and fortitude, years of searching,
Some appear overnight, glistening,
leading the seeker
