BIRD BY BIRD
BIRD BY BIRD

When asked the question “Why do you write?” I offer the classic answer, “Because I must.” But it’s still difficult to begin a project. I can create brilliant similes and metaphors in my head. I can encounter the most engaging characters in the inner world of my mind. I can evoke the deepest emotions inside my soul, bringing myself to tears. But unless I write, unless I put one word after the other, bird by bird, the beauty is fleeting. Ann Lamott’s book is an excellent resource, but its greatest value is in the title’s exhortation, Bird by Bird.

QUOTABLES

Heat and humidity commingle to form a thick haze over the cotton fields, muting the lush green plants to monochromatic grays. The haunting vista captures my heart, and I stop my labors and lean for a moment on my broom. . . This is Delaney land, my land, the heritage handed down from generations of farmers and planters who grew cotton and built wealth, and then lost the money-but not the land. Never the land. Sarah Booth Delaney's thoughts to begin "Smarty Bones" by Carolyn Haines.

St. John the Baptist

John the Baptist was the first to proclaim Christ's divinity. How appropriate that the child leapt in the womb. May we all be inspired by his great faith. Comment: http://rbogorman.com/blog-4/files/92fc59508f34a8b537996639def3f44f-7.html
