Quotation: April 14, 2015

“– it was his business to help them play. He could think of nothing better to do with his life, for he knew that when they felt free to play, their souls showed; who they were came out more clearly than at almost any other time. And the more one got used to letting one’s self show, unafraid, the more joy came walking into one’s life. And then the Self showed itself still more–and the cycle continued, joy engendering joy, endless. He leaned on the wall, warm with the thought of what his work was freeing those around him to be.”

p. 234  THE WOUNDED SKY by Diane Duane (a Star Trek novel)

Quotation – May 14, 2014

Laugh at yourself, but don’t ever aim your doubt at yourself.  Be bold.  When you embark for strange places, don’t leave any of yourself safely on shore.  Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.

Alan Alda

Quotation – March 13, 2014

Sit and quiet yourself.  Luxuriate in a certain memory and the details will come.  Let the images flow.  You’ll be amazed at what will come out on paper.  I’m still learning what it is about the past that I want to write.  I don’t worry about it.  It will emerge.  It will insist on being told.
