Good writers tell a good story. Great writers somehow infuse that story with a deeper wisdom often reflected in science and art. And then a lighbulb goes off in the reader’s mind, lighting a path for them to explore.

Through thought. Through dreams. And (thanks, Abdellah) through actions.

Everyone who commented found a bit of truth that resonated with them. And not surprisingly each person found something different within your post.

You did that for me twice in the span of a page:

“People always judge others using the model of their own limitations” — a great insight that’s been on my mind since I read about the Dunning-Kruger Effect, a Nobel Prize winning paper.

“I write the book that wants to be written” — and I remembered Michelangelo saying “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

Thanks for sharing part of your process. It’s inspiring that you are a part of this community.
