This month, because I live for non-conformity (and to keep from having to think of something to write about) I am participating in a challenge designed to celebrate Ralph Waldo Emerson’s 208th birthday. (Honestly, he doesn’t look a day over 112 to me.)
Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. The force of character is cumulative. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
If ‘the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tracks,’ then it is more genuine to be present today than to recount yesterdays. How would you describe today using only one sentence? Tell today’s sentence to one other person. Repeat each day.
Today I laughed
and wrote like there was a
clearance sale on words
in a store that welcomes checks.
Came across this thanks to a friend – stunning wordsmithery!
Wow- this passage blew me away:
“…wrote like there was a clearance sale on wordsin a store that welcomes checks.”
Stunning, Jeanne. Stunning.
