How do words move people?

It has been a long while since I’ve stepped back into academia, but when I did, the unadulterated joy of it all has been over whelming. Young, inquisitive and curious minds on the path to finding a voice in a chaotic and complex world has me in rapture. The quest for knowledge is an eternal wellspring. Time takes me back to “A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness;”  Their literary pieces have given me an insight into their world and how they are trying to construct meaning of the world around them. In their writing, I see an unbridled passion for life. Rich in creativity and imagination, they are unaware of their own true potential. I wish for them to have the ‘madness’ that Ray Bradbury so aptly describes in his little piece titled “Ray Bradbury’s Advice to Writers.”
