Scary truth

"And at some point I believe one has to stop holding back for fear of alienating some imaginary reader or real relative or friend, and come out with personal truth."--May Sarton, Journal of a Solitude

How paradoxical that the revelation we fear, and are tempted to self-censor, may be the very thing that lights up our work. It may be the very kernel of truth that nourishes the reader.
