Nothing of Substance Yet

Parts and pieces I might use for a story.

“If music be the food of love, play on,
Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.”
― William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

“Because what’s worse than knowing you want something, besides knowing you can never have it?”
― James Patterson, The Angel Experiment

Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it. ~ J. K. Rowling

I know I am but summer to your heart,
And not the full four seasons of the year. ~ Edna St. Vincent Millay

We are not the same person this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person. ~ W. Somerset Maugham

Love is a temporary insanity, curable by marriage. ~ Ambrose Bierce

Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better. ~ William Shakespeare

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”
― Elie Wiesel

“Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.”
― Albert Camus

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.”
― Albert Einstein, The World As I See It

Haven’t decided if these will end up in some over here, but they might.

It’s Not About Sheep

ba ba ba ba ba ba ab ba ba ba ba ba ba ba….
I’m sleeping
and right in the middle of a good dream,
and all at once I wake up
from something that keeps knocking at my brain.
Before I go insane I hold my pillow to my head
and spring up in my bed screaming out the words I dread:

This song always makes me smile.

Rewards For Hard Work

Been busting my ass at double or triple speed lately and have less to show than when I was doing…less.

Not sure if it is a mild hiccup or something more. Based upon what I see around me I am inclined to say it is hiccup and that the work I am doing now will pay off later.

Sometimes it is hard to be patient and not go nuts when you don’t see the rewards you want from your hard work.

Speaking of hard work, I am barely finding time to write, but I am still doing it.

Why So Serious?

Every  time someone asks me why I am so serious I wonder what they would say if they knew that some people ask me if I am ever serious.

Sometimes I really like pushing the envelope just to see how far I can go. Call it silly, juvenile or Fred, doesn’t really matter to me. I just like doing what I can to have fun.

Life is filled with lots of serious moments, might as well do our best to enjoy the less serious moments with as much frequency as possible.

Much More To Say

Got all sorts of ideas and things to talk about, much, much more to say but lack of time to do it now.

Been pretty happy with what is happening over here, think I’ll write some more later on tonight or tomorrow, maybe both days.

Not easy to maintain as many blogs as I have, but I do my best.
