[Exercise: What is your third thing (what you and your writing gaze out at)?]
My third thing is my unquenchable search for Truth—truth about myself, others, and the world. I feel a deep longing that I can only understand or explain as a longing for God. This desire propels me forward. It drives me deeper inside of myself, looking for answers. It calls me into relationship with others. It forms the basis of my self-reflection. This desire is what keeps me writing—curious to see what emerges, and from what part of me it emerges from.
