Facing the Blank Page, by David Martin
“David Martin has the rare gift of writing, which inspires readers to open their eyes and look closely at the world around them. Whatever subject he writes about, he convinces us that he has discovered what is most important in life and has never forgotten it. He epitomizes Plato’s famous quotation from Socrates: ‘The unexamined life is not worth the living.’ At the heart of his essays is Martin’s conviction that writing is essential to the well-being of people of all ages. He has found joy and meaning in his own writing, and he is passionate in his desire to encourage others to realize what a precious gift writing can be. His essays model a graceful style, a strong voice, a facility with language, and a focus on what is truly significant in life.” Dr. Loren Logsdon, Emeritus Professor of English, Eureka College, Eureka, Illinois.
