Consuming and Creating

The goal is not good writing, the goal is writing. I have found that in my life there is an imbalance between creating and consuming. It is so easy to consume what others have created. I love to read, to listen and to play with the great and many things that have been made for my encouragement, enjoyment and entertainment. I find that I can spend hours consuming the brilliance of others and leave nothing for others to consume. At the end of a day filled with consuming I feel stimulated yet unproductive. I believe that we all have voices and it is our responsibility to contribute to the conversation. Not only to take what is on the table, but also to leave something for others to chew on.
