In truth I can post whenever I want, but I am trying to be disciplined during the day. Nights are set aside for family but tonight I'm kind of on my own.
Here's what my teacher taught me today-
"A genuine work of art must mean many things; the truer the art, the more things it will mean... It is there NOT so much to convey a meaning as to wake a meaning."
-George MacDonald, writer
Then he said about children, in regards to stories that were imaginative and difficult for adults to get their minds around...but kids-
"They find what they are capable of finding, and more would be too much."
Wishing I was at the ocean!
George MacDonald has written many fairy tales, and some of those I would like to re-write and publish because they are almost lost to the general public. I had to look hard to find a book of his stories, and they are so outdated, yet still wonderful, that I feel sure the up and coming kids of today, as well as their parents, would enjoy a new telling of these tales.
My name in Chinese...actually, I think it means "Cola"-
sweet and bubbly? Hmmm- my friend should have translated
my name into "Vodka"- LOL :) (looks innocent enough to be water,
but not innocent at all! :)
So...I found my muse/inspiration today in one of my favorite authors. It's amazing after the many years since his death- he still speaks clearly. Yesterday I felt defeated. Today I felt empowered. I read in bed, took notes, and drank hot tea. (I also did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, went to kroger, cooked dinner, and did the school pick-up thing-)
Tomorrow will prove to be an even better day! I simply feel it. I feel free. I feel alive. I feel touched by something... I hope I'm not sick! LOL :)
Happy weekend everyone- I hope to catch up with each of you this weekend!
