I haven’t updated my blog in so long. Sometimes you just run out of ideas of what to write. Or is it run out of mood? Then again, maybe I think too much of what to write and so it just becomes overwhelming. So not writing becomes the most logical thing to do when this happens. I should write just for the sake of writing.

I love words.

This love of word was induced by my close friend in university. At that time she already understood the power of words, how it can move people in certain directions, while I was just starting to take notice of what she sees in words. Slowly, I start to understand why she is fascinated by words.

It’s just amazing how words can move people and make a message so powerful. This week I’m struck with the words of Natalie Portman and JK Rowlings on their commencement speech in Harvard. I really wonder how people can find the right words, and then make it into sentences, and then paragraphs until it becomes a message that just moves you.

Well, I want to be able to write like that. Moving people through words.
