the long and short of it is...

{a sampling of Words of Wisdom to which i ascribe}

'Some things have to be believed to be seen.'

~ Attributed to Albert Einstein

'A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.'

~ Eleanor Roosevelt

'A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.'

~ Robert Heinlein, channelling Lazarus Long, 'Time Enough for Love' (1973)

'By having a reverence for life, we enter into a spiritual relation with the world. By practicing reverence for life we become good, deep, and alive.'

~ Albert Schweitzer

'Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.'

~ Harriet Beecher Stowe

'Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.'

~ David Joseph Schwartz


There is stuff out there that needs to be done, and then there's the stuff that should be done: creative stuff. The stuff that gathers in the deep recesses of your mind, like wool, pieces of string, stray buttons and those socks that don't match.

This journal is going to be a venue for posting snippets of writing I'm currently working on and thus, meaning I have to work on it or I won't have a snippet to post.

I hope I'm being clever and not ridiculous.

Staring out the classroom window or at nothing in particular used to be called 'daydreaming'. My teachers probably thought I had trouble focusing or didn't care about my studies. Truth is, my mind was usually going a mile a minute - or a kilometre a minute, for those who live in Metric. Too many trains on the track, as I decribe it now. Too much coming and going and demanding my attention.

Hence, the Daydreamer Express. Welcome aboard!

I think I'm more focused than I used to be, though some may gently wish to suggest otherwise. I'm a writer and I have to write. It's necessary, like breathing and moving and feeling - and chocolate.

We'll see if I make any progress here.

DISCLAIMER: All the works of original fiction are mine, unless otherwise noted in the post. If I find out anyone has stolen part or all of any of my writing, I will come after you with the legal wrath of Justice.

And a very big stick. :)
