I write to create red in a world that often appears black and white. I write to discover. I write to uncover. I write to begin a dialogue. I write to imagine things differently and in imagining things differently perhaps the world will change. I write against power and for democracy. I write myself out of my nightmares and into my dreams. I write in a solitude born out of community. I write to the questions that shatter my sleep.
I write because I believe in words. I write because I do not believe in words. I write because it is a dance with paradox. I write as a witness to what I have seen. I write as a witness to what I imagine.

— Terry Tempest Williams, Red: Passion and Patience in the Desert
