A Study in Contradictions

Writers write. It’s a soul deep belief that I hold. Sometimes, however, real life gets in the way of writing. For the last week or so, I’ve been traveling through China.

I love travel. My second tenet is that life is about experiences. So when I got the last minute invitation to spend three weeks in China, I took it.

This writer hasn’t written more than a thousand words in the last ten days, and I’m okay with that.

Creativity is a well, but it’s not endless. Often, I think, it needs to be replenished. Whether that’s with long walks through the woods (my current favorite) or traveling and seeing new experiences, it’s something I have to do.

I’m typing this from Nanjing, China. I’ll leave you with some pictures from the last week of travel. I hope they are as inspiring for you as the visit has been for me.
