Reading & Writing

Reading is ephemeral, momentary, a transient joy. It is a journey, an experience that leaves you with memories, impressions, thoughts and questions. Compared to that, writing is much more work (for me), but after the arduous journey of sentence forming, you are left with something tangible. A completed piece of writing. To top it off, there is this beautiful feeling of the joy of achievement.

In a way, writing completes the journey that reading begins. Through the process of sentence forming, it crystallizes some of those vague impressions that reading leaves you with. 

A joy of its own class. All yours for a bit of effort and some discipline.
