Quote of the Day (Joan Didion, on Why She Wrote)

“Had I been blessed with even limited access to my own mind there would have been no reason to write. I write entirely to know what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means.”—American essayist, novelist, and screenwriter Joan Didion (1934-2021), “Why I Write,” The New York Times Book Review, December 5, 1976

The same goes for me, I think, along with the need to tell someone somewhere about it in a manner that involves expression in an orderly fashion.
