quote_wonder

More often than not, our lives don’t turn out the way that we envision.  Whether for good or bad, things change.  They always do, one way another, if we continue to do so.  Some people are happy with things as they are; others always dream of more and want to be inspired or find something to be excited about to awaken their creativity.

Some people play in a band, join a hockey or bowling league, or any other number of hobbies outside of their work life or daily exchanges.  It is important to find something that awakens our brain cells and engages us in enthusiasm.  There are so many artistic outlets that people have like photography, painting, crafting, renovating….. any number of DIY projects that add a spark to the daily necessities and business of life.

For me, I find wonder in things that others may deem mundane or without merit.  However, I need to find things that use my passions and bring satisfaction at seeing what I have brought forth.  To bring peace and pleasure to the mundane, looking for things that can bring us to wonder and happiness, even for a short time, allow us to dream more creatively and fill our spirits with Hope.

Are we writers because we live or do we live because we are writers?

“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.”

– Ernest Hemingway

“And what, you ask, does writing teach us? First and foremost, it reminds us that we are alive and that it is a gift and a privilege, not a right.”

― Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

― Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”

― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

― Toni Morrison

“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”

― Stephen King

“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”

― Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

airplane vintage photo quote

Summer travels are underway and long awaited trips and vacation days are being used. For me, vacation days are being used to see family. Gone are the days when families lived close to each other; now we use “face time” apps and email to substitute for a healthy hug and good morning smile.

As I sat in the over-packed gate at the airport, I looked around at all of the people. So many faces, hair colors, body types, dressing styles, and attitudes filled the lounge waiting to depart. In true ego fashion, we look at others and judge them, and ourselves, on an invisible sliding scale of who looks better and who is so striking that all eyes are drawn to the beautiful people.

Each plane ride is at least 140 – 150 people drawn together in a fairly small space. While people filled the aisles and looked for comfortable seats, again, I looked at the variety of faces and people as they filed onboard.
Yet each of us shares so many of the same ideals: we want to be loved, respected, admired, sexy and attractive. We want someone, or many people, to look at us and see how special we are and be drawn to our best selves.

Psychological studies show it takes 7 seconds to make a first impression. Will people look to my hair, clothing, makeup, or smile? Will they sum me up by my weight or style of shoes?

So little time to show who I am and my dreams are all up in the air.
