If I am having trouble with what happens next, but know something that will happen later, I may write the scenes out of order. Sometimes forcing yourself to write even five lines is enough, but sometimes you really need to go out for a walk. Is the issue that you are scared, or that you are following the wrong track with a plot line? And it really just depends.(less)

It is almost as if you are discovering the story, and learning it, instead of writing it, and that amazes me.(less)

Music Review: Hudsun

I cannot be satisfied writing this review; Hudsun's music reminds me of a music I heard in a commercial for Younger, and I have not been able to identify the right commercial, song, or artist. It feels like that would be very pertinent, and help give an idea of this music.

I can only try and describe.

It may be a newer style, where there is a lot of synthesizer and electronics, but it is not techno

Very interesting and evocative art, and very educational about lighthouses.

Caldecott winner.

While it is not unreasonable to have some concerns about a bear cub becoming a troop mascot, and then ending up in a zoo where a child could go in its pen and play, it's told cutely. I didn't know the connections.

Gerard Way
“Sometimes you have to kind of die inside in order to rise from your own ashes and believe in yourself and love yourself to become a new person.”
gerard way

Audre Lorde
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”
audre lorde

“Look you wanna know the truth? I don’t really care about the
stats or the cup or the trophy or anything like that. In fact even the games aren’t that important to me. What matters to me is the perfect throw, making the perfect catch, the perfect step and block. Perfection. That's what it's about. It's those moments. When you can feel the perfection of creation. The beauty the physics you know the wonder of mathematics. The elations of action and reaction and that is the kind of perfection that I want to be connected to.”
Samuel Anders

Václav Havel
“In an era when metaphysical and existential certainties are in a state of crisis, when people are being uprooted and alienated and are losing their sense of what this world means, this ideology inevitably has a certain hypnotic charm. To wandering humankind it offers an immediately available home: all one has to do is accept it, and suddenly everything becomes clear once more, life takes on new meaning, and all mysteries, unanswered questions, anxiety, and loneliness vanish. Of course, one pays dearly for this low-rent home: the price is abdication of one’ s own reason, conscience, and responsibility, for an essential aspect of this ideology is the consignment of reason and conscience to a higher authority. The principle involved here is that the center of power is identical with the center of truth.”
Václav Havel, The Power of the Powerless

Václav Havel
“If the main pillar of the system is living a lie, then it is not surprising that the fundamental threat to it is living the truth. This is why it must be suppressed more severely than anything else.”
