"We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand."
-Cecil Lewis Day
Being understood is good. I know from life, though, that things I understand may not be understood in the same way by someone else. In fact, it may be interpreted quite differently.
I put the words together, working to convey my meaning as clearly as possible, as efficiently as possible. To make sense of muddled thoughts. To find the meaning. To learn.
I write to understand.
