A Quote Kind of Night

I spent the day writing on the screened porch. It was a bit muggy after the storms moved off to the east, but the ceiling fan kept the air moving which made it pleasant. 
Jilda called to me for dinner at 6 p.m. and I was amazed how quickly the day had passed. I closed the MacBook and headed inside. 
I had to wake Ol' Buddy up, who'd been sleeping at my feet to get him to waddle inside. After dinner, we read for a while to give our food time to digest.
When I sat down to do an update on my blog, my mind went blank. I've had more thoughts and ideas when I'm in deep meditation than I could manage sitting here.

Sometimes when I'm at a loss for words, I reach for the book of quotations on my desk. It never fails to inspire me.

So, the old book of quotations came to my rescue again. This one seem to resonate with me tonight.

“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” 
― George Bernard Shaw

I hope you all have a remarkable Wednesday.


  1. So true.
    I don't know what more to say because I believe this to be true but the world is changing and
    I find this to be a very strange time to live right now.
    I was watching Guantanamo Bay today with this German fellow who spoke of what happened to him in there and I couldn't watch it anymore.I had to turn it off.
