Writing Letters You Will Not Send

6 Oct

The problem in the life of the writer has long been that he reveals too much. What of the writer when he does not reveal, but rather, hides what perhaps ought to be revealed? I think the answer is something of a secret implosion which soon manifests on the outside.

This blog is supposed to be about education, and i suppose it is. But when you’re sitting on your bed, alone in a foreign country, writing letters to friends that you will not send, thinking on past mistakes, and contemplating on whether you can move forward to be a better person, well –

I suppose you write a somewhat personal message to the faceless internet world to lift some of that weight off your chest. And to express  a bit of the truth you had such a difficult time expressing prior –

Simply because you didn’t know how.

Education. Not just for politics.
