Once when I was very little, a friend of my parents asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said, "A Brownie." It seemed like the most amazing thing you could be, and it was! I remember making new friends, going camping, learning how to make a fire, and sleeping in a tent. I also learned other useful things, like how to make a bed with hospital corners. I still make my bed that way! I found my Girl Scout pins a few years ago and put them on the inside of a satchel I use to carry my art supplies. They remind me of this special time in my life.(less)

Other than all that, it’s kind of boring :)(less)

The 104 Book Chal...: Deanne's 2015 books 206 24 Dec 31, 2015 11:33AM  
“In fact that is why the lives of most women are so vaguely unsatisfactory. They are always doing secondary and menial things (that do not require all their gifts and ability) for others and never anything for themselves. Society and husbands praise them for it (when they get too miserable or have nervous breakdowns) though always a little perplexedly and half-heartedly and just to be consoling. The poor wives are reminded that that is just why wives are so splendid -- because they are so unselfish and self-sacrificing and that is the wonderful thing about them! But inwardly women know that something is wrong. They sense that if you are always doing something for others, like a servant or nurse, and never anything for yourself, you cannot do others any good. You make them physically more comfortable. But you cannot affect them spiritually in any way at all. For to teach, encourage, cheer up, console, amuse, stimulate or advise a husband or children or friends, you have to be something yourself. [...]"If you would shut your door against the children for an hour a day and say; 'Mother is working on her five-act tragedy in blank verse!' you would be surprised how they would respect you. They would probably all become playwrights.”
Brenda Ueland

“No writing is a waste of time – no creative work where the feelings, the imagination, the intelligence must work. With every sentence you write, you have learned something. It has done you good.”
Brenda Ueland, If You Want to Write: A Book about Art, Independence and Spirit

“The imagination needs moodling,--long, inefficient happy idling, dawdling and puttering. ”
Brenda Ueland

“I say, there's nothing wrong with a bit of moodling - you come up with the most interesting ideas that way" -Dill”
