Since I started this most recent iteration of Perpetual Projecting, I’ve been reminded by multiple sources of the importance of not just reading, but also writing. The act of writing, putting pen to paper, expressing yourself, explaining your reasoning, putting thoughts into words, processing emotions, developing perspective, deeply thinking about what you’ve just heard or read or experienced… so many of these cannot come with reading alone. Reading is half the story, but don’t forget to engage in the expressive, cathartic, immersive challenge of writing. It’s a whole different way to learn and to understand that is not achieved through reading alone. Daily writing is turning into a real treat for me.
