To Read and to Travel

The reason we read is to discover what’s possible in the world1; and the reason we travel is to discover what’s real and true2.

From this we can see that the reason we write is to approximate what we see in terms of both what is true and what is possible so that others might experience the world as we see and hope it to be3.

  1. This portion inspired by Dr. Seuss and Mark Twain 

  2. I’m going to attribute this to Samuel Johnson as inspiration.  

  3. This part is all me and is, in part, derived from one of the instructions I give on writing: When I’m done reading what you’ve written, I should see what you see and understand what you’ve written in the way you understand it.
