On Why I Haven't Written

I warned you that there would be times when I wouldn't write much for this blog.

It's my job to create something from nothing. As a writer, you have a blank page and then you add smudges of ink. And, in the end, there's a world filled with people and their entire emotional freight where before ... there was nothing.

And sometimes in a country, there's hope where before there was no hope. I have been standing in awe, quietly.
