The earth, like the sun, like the air, belongs to everyone — and to no one.
I often, too often, censor myself.
I think fear drives me in these censoring decisions. sometimes it is fear of how others may react to what I have to say. More often though it is the fear of the lack of reaction. The fear that ultimately no one will care or that simply what I am saying won’t matter.
In starting to write here, the realization that I am arriving at is that this doesn’t matter. If I write only to make an impression then I am setting myself up for failure. As my voice will at some point fail to impress, or I will as I have for so long be ruled by my fear and refuse to speak.
So here is to overcoming self-censorship, over coming fear, and speaking up so that for good or bad, or for nothing at all I am at least casting my voice into the ether, so that I may know that I can speak.
