The Last Windrow: Why do I write?


Why do I write?

Someone asked me one day why I write these columns. The question took me aback for several minutes.

Why do I write these pieces of script? Surely not to get rich. Columnists are a dime a dozen and lots of people can write.

We all have something to say; some of us are just more disposed to write our thoughts down on paper or, as it is, on a computer screen.
