a good friend of mine is an incredible author and i just scrolled through the tumblr tag of her name.
it’s funny, i read and reblog SO much every day that is from a tv show, movie, or random pop culture that has moved me. i don’t often think about how those who write those words, portray those characters, or even make those edit choices — how they would respond if they knew just how these tiny moments have had such an impact on people and that they are so moved to read, watch and then share again with the world around them.
her tag is filled with pages of people reblogging her words. sometimes it’s just a text post, sometimes people take the time to create beautiful art from her prose. sometimes it’s a review or a post about how much they loved a particular book and how many times they’ve re-read it. my heart swelled so, so much because i, too, love them and i was so overjoyed at seeing so many others share the ideas and thoughts that have moved them with the world around them.
and it’s very exciting to know that other people celebrate her awesomeness as much as i do.
i would love to be able to do that one day. create art in any form that moves and inspires. until then, i’ll just keep surrounding myself with brilliant, inspiring friends and revel in them.
