Why This is Worth It.

Is all of this really necessary? This frittering over words, this endless search for metaphor and meaning in what is by and large the ordinary business of living? This small island of creativity in words and art here in the ocean of the internet will never make us wealthy or well-known, never put our kids through college, or help us retire early. So why do it?

Because we here at windowonwords believe and agree that life in all its ordinariness is so grand and heartbreaking that it deserves articulation, magnification, and celebration. There is nothing utilitarian about being alive. We choose to live out our creativity as beings in the world because on some level, we believe that heart of creativity is love, and that the world is in need of all of the love it can get.
