the authors among us

Man is different from the rest of the animal kingdom.  From nothing he creates something.  He fills empty pages with words, blank walls with murals and silent rooms with music.  Perhaps this is his natural drive, for he is after all, the “tool-making animal.”

Blessed with reason, humans, and the authors among them, are cursed by the understanding that death punctuates the only existence they know.  Whether that mark be a period, comma, semi-colon, or exclamation, will likely forever remain in the province of belief and faith. 

But through art, science, and religion, authors set out to explore and explain this existence.  They pick the words, write the sentence, and choose the punctuation.
