Someone shared this on my twitter feed today. A letter from Kurt Vonnegut, about advice with life. To him, ‘practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.’
I am in the process of becoming.
In the process too of making my soul grow.
I keep practicing poetry writing.
Keep telling stories too.
Not for any fame or fortune, but to live in the moment.
As all the words within me linger on till eternity.
Kurt Vonnegut also noted that we should practice a six-line poetry about anything but rhymed. The sentences above are my attempt at writing six lines. I hope you find your way of becoming
