I am currently reading Every Day by David Levithan. This sentence struck a chord (the protagonist is sending an email):
“I let go of the words and wonder what words will come back. If any.” p.93
I think this is what the little frisson of excitement is all about each time I press ‘send’ on an email, ‘post’ on Facebook, ‘tweet’ on twitter, or ‘publish’ on a blog post. Letting go of the words… waiting for some to come back.
