“Being soaked alone is cold.
Being soaked with your best friend is an adventure.”
Emily Wing Smith
One of the most inspiration play-writes past away today…I’m am sad.
“I’m a great believer in chaos. I don’t believe that you start with a formula and then you fulfill the formula. Chaos is a much better instigator, because we live in chaos — we don’t live in a rigorous form.”
— Sam Shepard in conversation with Clare Dwyer-Hogg, 2013
(I found this on Bustle)
“When you consider all the writers who never even had a machine. Who would have given an eyeball for a good typewriter. Any typewriter. All the ones who wrote on a matchbook covers. Paper bags. Toilet paper. Who had their writing destroyed by their jailers. Who persisted beyond all odds.”
– Sam Shepard, True West
“It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.”
Maud Hart Lovelace
We talked about our trip to Scotland in the last blog and visiting Aberfeldy, here is a poem by Robert Burns about the wonderful little town.
“The Birks of Aberfeldy”
- Bonie lassie, will ye go,
- Will ye go, will ye go,
- Bonie lassie, will ye go
- To the birks of Aberfeldy!
- Now Simmer blinks on flowery braes,
- And o’er the crystal streamlets plays;
- Come let us spend the lightsome days,
- In the birks of Aberfeldy!
Ps. photo is of the Hogwarts Express…because I felt like it.
I definitely need some inspiration on a gray and uninviting day like today. So I gathered together some sparkly words of wisdom.
“Nothing in the world is ever completely wrong.
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.”
“Live Long and Prosper”
– Leonard Nimoy
“Tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus. Our bodies are our gardens to the which our wills are gardeners.”
In advance of a related post coming up this week, I want to share something beautiful from a wonderful writer and woman who I find to be very inspiring and too often forgotten.
