Canister quote from Shakespeare this morning
"This above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man."
What may be revealing is the other quote that was stuck to this one that I read and shredded. After reading this I disagreed with the approach enough to remove it and toss it.
"The life that conquers is the life that moves with a steady resolution and persistence toward a predetermined goal. Those who succeed are those who have thoroughly learned the immense importance of plan in life and the tragic brevity of time." WJ Davison
I tried this method for years. It does have some merit in the area of thoroughly examining goals and persistence is always a good thing as long as there's creative awareness available. I'm also not feeling threatened or intimidated by the "brevity of time" any longer. I'm exercising my resistence to that notion. I have plenty and plenty of time. I've lived my life way to long according to someone elses' false sense of urgency. No thanks!
Plans are made for breaking, being foiled, falling through, mishaping, you name it. He who expects nothing is never disappointed. Sorry WJ Davison, your quote is not on my list. Thanks for the opportunity to clarify!
What shall I forgive this day to amuse and delight?
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
