Good morning, friends!
Writing truth can be painful, almost brutal.  I saw a quote on Facebook yesterday that got me thinking.  Toni Morrison has never spoken any truer words.  Definitions belong to the definers, not the defined.  I have let so many people or society put definitions on me that I have started to believe them.  Handicapped and disabled are not my definitions.  Records are records, they are meant to be broken, doesn't mean we may want them too; the same can be said for definitions.  I may not run a sub 4 minute mile, but it's just a number.  What we do versus who we are.  Am I a writer or a person who simply writes?  I'll let you answer that.

Bon journee mes amis!


  1. You are so right. Writing can be painful + brutal. That's a great quote!


  2. Love Toni Morrison!
    What a great quote!


  3. Now that I've just started my blog, I completely understand that quote.. and it seems so easy!
    Thanks for stopping by, you've won a fan!


  4. That is a great quote! Why do we always need to put labels on everything/one?


  5. We are who we are and that's what makes us beautiful and unique. Thanks for your post, I loved it.

  9. Great quote. I think the most important thing is how you feel on the inside and how you see yourself. If you see yourself as a writer, then that's what you are. I know I will never be a "sporty person", I'm only a person who does some sports ;-) Great post, really made me think. Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog, have a lovely day xo
