"To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don't grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float."
--Alan Watts (1915-1973), British author and philosopher
Sounds a lot like writing to me. The lightness that comes from faith. Trust yourself to the river of stories running down deep, relax, float and see where the current takes you.
