Thank you!

Thank you for the writing, for taking the time and spirit and soul to write, because I love to read, and I'm so thankful to writers like you, for writing things for me to read. And keep going, even when people make you feel like it's not that important. It might be the most important thing you do. Keep going. 
So to all the secret writers, late-night painters, would-be singers, lapsed and scared artists of every stripe, dig out your paintbrush, or your flute, or your dancing shoes. Pull out your camera or your computer or your pottery wheel. Today, tonight, after the kids are in bed or when your homework is done, or instead of one more video game or magazine, create something, anything.
Pick up a needle and thread, and stitch together something particular and honest and beautiful, because we need it. I need it.
Thank you, and keep going.
