and the picture prompt for Friday Flash is
Why one writes is a question I can answer easily, having so often asked it of myself. I believe one writes because one has to create a world in which on can live. I could not live in any of the worlds offered to me – the world of my parents, the world of war, the world of politics. I had to create a world of my own, like a climate, a country, an atmosphere in which I could breathe, reign and recreate myself when destroyed by living. That, I believe is the reason for every work of art.” – Anais Nin, The New Woman.
