MFRW Monthly Quote January 2014 #MFRWorg

As part of our new series of staff posts, in addition to my Facebook group moderation posts on the 5th of each month, I will also be posting an inspirational quote on each 18th. I’m delighted by this opportunity to share the multitude of quotes I find insightful, profound, inspiring, uplifting, or simply extraordinary in some way. While not all of them will (appear to) directly relate to writing, I personally feel that anything that enhances our sense of groundedness, gratitude, and awareness in life intrinsically supports our creative endeavors. :)

I won’t usually spend so much time introducing—most of these posts will simply be the quote itself—but I did want to offer a bit of background about what I’ll be posting here on the 18th of each month. Without further ado, here is this month's (inaugural!) inspirational quote:
The role of art (poetry, novels, music, films) is, in part, to question the limits we place on ourselves; the role of art is to offer a glimpse of a different reality. It stands there beckoning to us—there is greater potential in you and in life than you can see, than you are trying to see.”
-Rod MacIver

Enjoy, be well, and see you next month!
