The purpose of a writer
is to keep civilization
from destroying itself.
Open your eyes, look within. Are you
satisfied with the life you’re living?
Others indeed may talk, and write,
and fight about liberty, and make
outward pretense to it; but the
free-thinker alone is truly free.
Walking with a friend in the dark is
better than walking alone in the light.
Wealth is like sea-water; the more
we drink, the thirstier we become;
and the same is true of fame.
Sir Arthur Charles Clarke
In any moment of decision,
the best thing you can do is
the right thing. The worst thing
you can do is nothing.
I have been noticing for the past few days, the leaves on different trees, are slowly changing to autumnal colors. Since it is August 23, I do think it is odd for the leaves to be changing so early. Around this part of the state, the change usually begins in mid to late September, or early October.
For the past week or so, the nights have been cool, and throw in the rain, which there has been a quite a bit. So could be a possibility of the change coming early. Then again, or could mean nothing, short of an earlier arrival of winter.
Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build
your own, and let it grow, be like water.
There are no two clouds that look the same.
I don’t like definitions, but if there is a definition of freedom,
it would be when you have control over your reality to transform
it, change it, rather than having it imposed upon you. You can’t
really ask for more than that.
The mind that finds its way to wild places is the poet’s;
but the mind that never finds its way back is the lunatic’s.
– G. K. Chesterton
In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher.

What would you be doing, if wasn’t reading this post?
I got out of bed way to early.
Need more coffee.
I think better than I write.
Whether it is
the end result is plain old everyday water.
