Millions of people have said they could write a book about what they’ve seen and lived. Although this wouldn’t always lead to the most exciting book it is definitely something people should do.
Writing is a meditative thing. We’re not talking about sending a message on Whatsapp or other social media. Because although all this “information” is stored endlessly in heavy CO2-emitting data centers, it doesn’t really contribute to your state of mind or balance.
Writing does. Forming sentences, formulating thoughts, and writing down memories will enrich your existence. Written and collected, they will have you realize in the future how the world and you have changed. And if you are no longer there, it will still keep you alive because a Dutch proverb says: whoever writes will stay.
