E for Essay

Just putting this out there for myself to hear.  Write, scribble, pronounce and sing to remember and solidify, hopefully help materialize..

I really, really adore essay.  Longform.  It’s got to be the right subject, though.

I’m a huge cheerleader for humanity, and I like looking at the core of ideas .. I like peering into people’s souls.  Good essay does this.

My absolute favorite — and you can’t classify this writing as essay, but say it is so because of how he it was pieced together after his death (I view his original form as essay) — is Paul Kalanithi’s When Breath Becomes Air.

I’ll stop right there.. because I need to sit with the idea of him.

That’s what I want to close with .. as I close this night.

.. Paul Kalanithi.  I like looking at his soul.

This is for the 2017 A to Z Challenge – a series of alphabetized themes throughout April, based on a theme.

My theme is my writing identity, self-discovery, learning to blog (again) — take your pick!

Visit the A to Z Challenge website to learn more.  It’s never to late.  I think.
