This one seems appropriate for LJ:

Writing can be a true spiritual discipline. Writing can help us to concentrate, to get in touch with the deeper stirrings of our hearts, to clarify our minds, to process confusing emotions, to reflect on our experiences, to give artistic expression to what we are living, and to store significant events in our memories. Writing can also be good for others who might read what we write.

Quite often a difficult, painful, or frustrating day can be "redeemed" by writing about it. By writing we can claim what we have lived and thus integrate it more fully into our journeys. Then writing can become lifesaving for us and sometimes for others too.

~ Henri J.M. Nouwen


([livejournal.com profile] _metanoia_ has been posting Nouwen quotes regularly over on [livejournal.com profile] catholic_quotes. This may be the main reason why I keep the community on my reading list even though I'm not Catholic.)
