Empathic writers hold affection
for those we write to.
Whether it’s a manifesto, magazine article,
corporate memo, screenplay, love poem or policy...
...there is something we want to say,
and someone we want to say it to.
Writing is a lot of things but, primarily, it is reaching.
It leans itself forward to connect an idea with a mind.
And ideally, a heart.
The best writing is clear and honest.
It stands tall, like a Redwood.
Easily seen. Distinguishable.
And when you’ve read writing like that,
a lot of times you stand taller, too.
Because you’ve been honored, rather than bragged to.
Respected, rather than manipulated.
Seen, rather than sold.
Write tall, like a Redwood.
Use your words as an ecosystem,
rather than a clamor.
Endure the aging, the winds, the verticality.
Enjoy the knowing, the songs, the community.
Be a marvel and a home
