“Words are a lens to focus one’s mind.” Ayn Rand
As a child, I used magnifying glasses to concentrate the sun’s energy into a smaller area, intensifying the energy density to the point where paper would combust.
This is what I aspire to as an author: to set the page aflame with the power of words. To take the energy that is normally dispersed over a broad area and maybe enlightens and brightens but to concentrate it to an intense point and transfer all of my energy into a small area and set the world ablaze.
Focus unleashes fire.
