hermes, the messenger.

Whenever I have pent-up feelings, I grab ahold of a pen and start writing my worries and jitters away. Whenever I feel unusually ecstatic, I write down my day’s blow-by-blow, just so I could have something happy to look back on months, maybe years from now. But when writing involves bringing news that’s not exactly of the Gospel (good news) kind, I can’t bring myself to go past a few paragraphs. Scribbling down each word seems like such a chore. I start out strong, but I keep slowing down until I finally stop altogether, a zillion questions still buzzing around in my head. “Is this wrong? Maybe I should say it in a different way.”

They usually shoot the messenger. Maybe they should go ahead and shoot the writer first. Spare him the agony of writing the message altogether.
