~Sources of Joy ~ Day 212
I have been fighting with my text today, but then I remembered what someone else once said – as one does, and felt so much better for it.
Anna Haxen, a Danish to English translator, thought what she had to say in a forum one day was pretty unremarkable, but gave me written permission quite a while ago to quote it on my blog. It disappeared when I upgraded my blog theme. I have now placed it back on my sidebar:
“I do not fight with my texts. I just manipulate them until I get my way.”
Inspiration today did not come from the lunch the meals on wheels ladies brought João. Nor did it come from the men wielding a chain saw on the property behind us; they have felled trees, and now we have a prime view of what is a rather ugly house. It will still be ugly when they have finished all their refurbishments and painted it. That’s my opinion which, obviously, I shall keep to myself. 😉
Inspiration came in the form of avenues. Avenues of thought to be followed, researched and revised. Deep thoughts – the kind which wallow in the depths then unexpectedly one day, ripen, and surge upward unable to be contained any longer in something as small as a human brain.
Good. That’ll keep me busy. Seeing as I am merely twiddling my thumbs at the moment, and all. Ha!
