Writing about adversity…

A Hansen Chronicle

I have two favorite quotes i’m thinking about today. Though the topics they touch on are unrelated, they seem tightly intertwined for me:  writing and coping with adversity…

“Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.”
(Isaac Asimov)

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.”
(Ernest Hemingway)

I expect many of you can relate to both quotes, and that you know from experience how writing can be one way of working through adversity, if not during it, then in its aftermath.

Whether or not you write, if you find yourself facing adveristy of whatever sort, i wish you strength and peace.
