"I HAVE NOT SEEN WRITING lead to happiness in my friends' lives. I'm sorry to say this, I, who just fifteen years ago published a book telling everyone to grab their notebooks and write their asses off. No high like it, I said. I meant it — and it was true. Now I'm past fifty, and I have given everything to writing, the way a Zen master watches her breath and burns through distraction. Was I a fool to do this? Did I choose the wrong path?"

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, August 2, 2013 9:11 PM

As a student I wrote a lot of poetry.   I kept at it.  I found that pain was the best source of inspiration.  And eventually I got tired of the pain.  I remember the day I decided, if I have to suffer to be a poet, I won't be a poet.


I still write verse, but I fully acknowedge I'm no poet. (However I'm as happy as I've every been... and that's happy indeed.)

The Bhagavad-gita teaches that happiness and distress come and go like the winter and summer seasons. Whether you write or not.
