Sometimes the world takes a breath. In those quiet moments, those rare interstices, I find a separate peace in the ebb and flow and pattern of the words, in their collisions and collusions.

This post was written in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge  weekend Trifextra prompt:

For this weekend’s challenge, in honor of all of the writers throwing rationality (and perhaps sanity) to the wind and writing til their fingers bleed [during National Novel Writing Month], we’re asking for exactly 33 words about why we write.
