This blogger's desire

One desire I have is to be renowned as a provider of art. The medium or the type of art is not clear but the focus remain; that message must come forth. A message that preaches fairness with equality and gets people to act in truth with one another.
But such message does not come out of thin air. It must be embodied in our understanding of individual daily rituals packaged in an artistic form; a form that capture imagination whilst allowing the message retain its purity. Thus, I am taking up the tasks of the medieval craftsman with the use of words:

* By capturing thoughts and giving insight into ideas people have overlooked.
* By preserving rare moments like the first kiss of a lady, or jokes shared by age old friends and merging it with the logic of a tale.

Such goes beyond the simple use of words and music but also it comes by the creator thinking in a realm where words are refined and become life. The creator must work as a craftsman, refining his thoughts, digesting specific moments and then searching for a medium that can adequately express the message in a way that can be appreciated.

It is something I desire to do. Making the tears flow, charging the atmosphere to release that euphoric feeling through the spines of my audience, and creating lasting moments that they can always identify with.
This might be my most noble act to humanity. Changing myself, to change the world.

That's a great desire you have, Mr. C. I think a lot of us writers want at a very basic level to touch others and evoke emotions with our words.

You can change the world!

That is a very selfless and noble act, changing yourself for humanity reminds me of one of my favourite saying :"Love God and Serve humanity"
And one by one as we take stands to change the world we gradually may craete an army that will change the world. Then children will no longer die of maleria and the roads will no longer have death traps.
God help us all to be the best person we can be so we can heal the world and make it a better place even for you and i. Threads and Needles.

Its my fav saying changing myself to change the world best put is changing ourselves one by one to change the world.

You have a strong desire and a heavy burden, may you be able to accomplish it in its entirety but this is one step in the right direction and gradually you will get there. The journey of a thousand miles start with one step.\

Wish you luck.
