Letters of Questioning: An Idea Formed

LettersofQuestioning

 

A thought was had, an idea formed, here is the results, for all to share!

Dreamland’s Insurgents,
It is with great joy I pen this letter to you! I propose that we embark on a journey. A forming of a treatise if you will, on the concepts that plague us in the depth of our writing journeys thus far in life. I know, dear friend, that you may wonder on why I bring this quest to you, but think on it… the value and meaning in the words we could create here! The world and the importance of our words and its impact.
We are intellectual beings on this writing journey. We see the world around us with our mind, and express that best with our words… with philosophy and thought. So I put it before you and ask what would you see in an endeavor like this? What would you choose to get out of the sharing of ideas? Journeying together to find the “real” meaning and ideas in this practice we call writing? What value and meaning would you find in a personal philosophical writing treatise?

Deeply Troubled, Lost to Concepts beyond all control,
Random

Dear Random,
Let me remind you of the helpful words of England’s most renowned philosopher, Douglas Adams: “Don’t panic.” If the concepts “plague” you, you should probably have a nice cup of tea and relax. That’s like aiming for a nightmare when you just want a nap! But to answer your question – for me, no doubt, there’s the most value in the written word when it’s shared – why would anyone write without an intended audience? Even if it’s just a future self…. We’re social creatures! In writing no less, so of course why not collaborate? If for nothing else, than to soothe that occasional malaise of melancholy which meaning might stir in your heart. Your questions, of course, need to be answered – they are at the heart of the writing experience like a hidden fire…. When do you decide it is time to take a journey? Is it a call, an impulse – lightning hitting your brain?

Dancing around the chaos,
Dreamland’s Insurgents
