Keira. After several days of thinking about your responses, our exchange has inspired me to write a piece about enlightenment versus belief, versus understanding. I would like your permission to copy and highlight a portion of your comment. I will not mention you aside to say another writing sister of mine. Unless you allow the mention (which I have no problem doing I assure you) in my article.
Your responses actually did enlighten me. It provided me a perspective I never had before and provided me a “from the trenches” understanding I would like the writing community to know.
I’m just an old Texas boy who loves to write. But I’m also a Texas boy who loves to learn.
Thank you for learning me.
I await your permission ma’am.
