Some Thoughts Gather No Moss

306

One’s thinking does change as the years flow by, but some truisms evolve from time-tested thoughts, as well.

Here’s one I love because I feel it so much whenever I’m writing:
— from Anita Coates, February, 1993, The Writer article “Keep Dreaming” in the “Off the Cuff” column —

“…Because
there’s just no feeling as good as sitting down at the typewriter with a cup of coffee and a ream of paper and looking up a moment later to find three hours have slipped past…”

That thought truly comes from letting the flow go…!

Starting Out…

Why did I chose to use a photo of infancy, here?

001

Me, 1947, one-year-old!

Because…

as I think about life having been lived for 70 years, I also think of the whole thing of infancy, in life, and, here, on WordPress, this writing site that quickly has become like a home base, like the end of the trip through my writing life that also began in infancy, when I first put pencil to paper and which has come around full circle to a place where I feel I’m just beginning a new writing life that I was meant to live.

I’m a new, improved infant, able to write intelligently, but, in a way, just finding a life’s writing base.

It’s all too deep to go further. The more I attempt to explain it, the more I can elaborate on it. So I’ll just leave this main course, here, and leave you, dear readers, to speculate on more of life’s way of turning you thus and so, until you reach home base on your own terms and begin again, as an infant.
