Do you know how you anticipate eating a delicious meal that’s waiting for you?
How you can almost taste it?
How you can smell the aroma?
Do you know how you anticipate seeing a friend you haven’t seen for a while?
Basking in their company and catching up?
Do you know how you anticipate entering your warm house
When you have been walking outside in a cold winter night?
Do you know how you look forward to sleeping in your comfortable bed at the end of a long day?
When you can’t keep your eyes open any longer?
That’s how I feel when I haven’t written for a few days
When I know I’ll soon have a chance to put to paper again
My thirst will be quenched
My hunger satisfied
My fatigue will disappear
And joy will take their place
That’s what writing has come to mean to me
