Why do I write?
Someone asked me one day why I write these columns. The question took me aback for several minutes.
Why do I write these pieces of script? Surely not to get rich. Columnists are a dime a dozen and lots of people can write.
We all have something to say; some of us are just more disposed to write our thoughts down on paper or, as it is, on a computer screen.
I don’t know why I write. It may be a release for me, a way to detail my life experiences, which, coming from a small farm family, are becoming increasingly more remote.
