"What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?

Snakes and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails,

That's what little boys are made of."

~ Attributed to English poet Robert Southey (1774–1843)

Humans were so fragile. It was very inconvenient. )

“I have a long journey to take, and must bid the company farewell.”

Walter Ralegh (c. 1552-1618)

“Erret, et extremos alter scrutetur Hiberos:
Plus habet hic vitae, plus habet ille viae.”

“Let who will be a wanderer and explore farthest Spain: such may have more of a journey: he of Verona has more of a life.”

Claudian 370-c. 404
Of the old man of Verona who never left his home

“Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?

That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.”

A.E. Housman 1859-1936
‘A Shropshire Lad’ (1896) no. 40

"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned."

"My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake. I feel better already."

“You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we're doing it.”

~ Neil Gaiman (English born American Novelist, Journalist, Screenwriter, Children's author and Comics writer of The Sandman, American Gods, amongst many others, b.1960.)

Two posts. Wow. In the same week. Awesome. I'm going for a record here. :)

Of course, I've also been modifying my MotherJournal - which is on LJ and not called 'MotherJournal' anywhere but in my head - so that's taken up some time. That I'm posting at all is amazing, since I usually get too tired at the end of the day.

Not that this post is actually very... interesting... or anything...

I'll be fixing that aspect soon. :)

So, back to whatever you were doing. Nothing to see here... at the moment.

Move along... :)

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.
