I Am A Writer

Toni MorrisonCommencement season brings with it many words of wisdom to new graduates. Speaking of her art to Vanderbilt University graduates, award-winning author Toni Morrison said, “I am a writer and my faith in the world of art is intense, but not irrational, nor naïve — because art takes us and makes us take a journey beyond price, beyond cost, into bearing witness to the world as it is and as it should be. Art invites us to know beauty and to solicit it, summon it, from even the most tragic of circumstances.”

How would you describe the journey that your writing has taken you on?
