I’ve noticed that when I write,I start looking at the mirror more and more.
I obsessively inspect my face, look into my eyes, often in an aimless manner. Only today I realised that this was the physical manifestation of my very act of writing!
Writing makes one introspective. One has to dig inside his or her psyche to come up with words, sentences and turns of phrases for the thoughts that drift and flutter in the mind.
When the mind fails to come up with adequate words that satisfy the inner writer’s ability to communicate clearly, that’s when I go to the mirror and try to find a satisfactory solution.
Today I realized that the mind can express metaphors in visceral ways just as the body can affect the mind in metaphysical ways.
