For the writer, words are flowers that can be woven together to create a garland. The scent from the garland can be intoxicating, not just for the readers, but the writer too. No wonder, reading and writing are both addictive.
A writer can forgo sleep to maximize the number of hours spent in creative expression through words. A reader, too, can spend extended length of time in extracting the joy, sorrow, and countless other feelings that are buried in the pages of books.
Writers and readers share an unbreakable bond. At the very core of this relationship is the sharing of knowledge. Words from the writer expands the reader’s world. And as the reader’s hunger for knowledge intensifies, a writer must supply more of what can be produced to make our existence more meaningful.
I am part of what I have just presented before you. I weave garlands with my words, and also wear around my neck the garlands woven by other writers. That is how it must be.
