I‘m still feeling the glow from a recent fiction writing class at Stanford … https://continuingstudies.stanford.edu/
“…and endeavors to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Henry David Thoreau
…at local public library.
Row, row, row your boat, Gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, Life is but a dream.
…to me now! Went to a CA Writer’s Club meeting yesterday. The speaker was Poet ~ Devi S. Laskar ~. http://www.devislaskar.com/ She had us do some fun writing exercises. I’m not really even into poetry, but everything I see looks like a poem to me now.
..letting ideas flow as petals fall around me.
“… I would rather be ashes than dust. I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze, than…be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.” Jack London
Went to a fascinating talk on CRISPR, a gene editing tool. I got lots of ideas for my Sci-Fi novel, in progress…
I always find something inspiring at my local library, even if it’s not something to read. (like this Princess flower bush planted next to the parking lot.)
Those are the names of the two lions guarding the great New York Public Library, where I went on a recent visit back East. Patience & Fortitude; good advice for life and writing!
“…You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.” ~ John Steinbeck Visited the lovely Steinbeck Center in Salinas. Inspiring on many levels. http://steinbeck.org/
Went to the Monet exhibit in San Francisco. The woman in the painting is Monet’s wife. This image is still haunting me. What’s her story?
