All I Want to Do

This passage, from Wallace Thurman's letter to Langston Hughes explaining Thurman's own aims in writing his (unpublished) collection of essays Aunt Hagar's Children, captures the spirit of why I feel compelled to keep this blog, and, I imagine, why other people blog, too:

All I want to do is get some things off my own chest, and perhaps beget discussion, which will be perhaps of some aid to those of us who wish to make the most of our talents. Mayhap I am somewhat of a crusader. It's a thankless task, but if one feels the urge why not?
