Everything is Interesting

I no longer distinguish between friendships that begin face to face and those that begin with words on a page. Never underestimate the words, for they create ties that bind just as surely as the spoken word.  A friend recently wrote that everything is interesting if you pay attention.  I read of a prominent writer’s latest book, that he was tapped out, that he had used up all the interesting bits from his life, that he was finished.  I thought, how can that be, is he dead, for it’s as my friend said, “everything is interesting if you pay attention, you can write thousands of words–if you really want to–on any tiny topic you can think up and you can even make it interesting if you’re the curious sort, love storytelling, and are a reasonably good writer.” And you can do it, if you choose, in six sentences.
