Beyonce’ Mass at Memorial Church, Stanford, last night…Inclusion, not exclusion. https://www.beyoncemass.com/
Never stop learning…
I‘m still feeling the glow from a recent fiction writing class at Stanford … https://continuingstudies.stanford.edu/
“If one advances confidently in the direction of one’s dreams…”
“…and endeavors to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Henry David Thoreau
Winner: Best Literary steps….
…at local public library.
“…Life is but a dream”…
Row, row, row your boat, Gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, Life is but a dream.
Everything looks like a poem…
…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.
Walking after rain…
..letting ideas flow as petals fall around me.
” In magnificent glow…”
“… 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
Learning how to Edit Genes!!!….
Went to a fascinating talk on CRISPR, a gene editing tool. I got lots of ideas for my Sci-Fi novel, in progress…
Going to the library
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.)
Patience and Fortitude
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!
“Ideas are like rabbits….”
“…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/
