The Epic Nature of Life
Each time I watch the 1992 movie based on the second book in Cooper's The Leatherstocking Tales, I ask myself if I am brave enough to WRITE BIG. Not safe, but BIG. Fearless. After the movie last night, I came into my office and without turning the lights on, typed this declaration:

The answer is YES. Yes, we can write these stories. Yes, we are brave enough. Yes, we can set aside our smallness and our frailties and reach for that deeper part of ourselves that knows there are GREAT TRUTHS in this world, and it is these truths about which we must write.
