Ramblings Of An Elder Writer

Source

Inviting The Muse

Where to set the balance, neither too shallow nor too deep; like fishing somehow.

Shallow is easy,somewhat less than too deep is not, if I could even write something approaching too deep.

Religion, politics, philosophy (that's a good one), an overview of life perhaps?

Concern for humanity is worthwhile, but no bemoaning; that's too shallow, like fakirs that are hired to wail, then go home to supper.

The meaning of what is true? That was too deep once for me to even pretend at resolving.

The art of the possible? Possibles for the better, or possibles for worse; does it make any difference? Somehow I think not, for soon enough we will have them both.

Are there good times in my lifetime worth grieving about once lost? Remember grandmother said that there's "no use crying over spilt milk, there's enough water in it already."

Move on, ramble on, and soon enough the muse will strike and perhaps this time the thought crying for expression will burst forth and shed its little light on a rambling world of the cunning, and of the bleating sheep longing for their shepherd.

Courage now, enough to write badly.


Scratches to a blank paper....

Sorry, a little too deep for me ;-) I need to pay attention to this hub as I get "out there" sometimes and need a tether.

Ericdierker - Not to worry, Eric. After all, if some writer hadn't let his imagination fly into "deep space," we wouldn't have had Superman! So: Up, up, and away!

Personal fire experience: I had peeled and cut potatoes for french fries and they were cooking on the electric stove element when I noticed the oil was boiling over. Realizing a fire would ensue I took hold of the pan desite the oil now bubbling onto the pan's handle and removed it to a safe area.

While the boiling oil was starting to burn my hand, I saw the pan I had peeled the potato peelings in and put my burning hand into that pan with its water and peels.

I ended up with no burn blisters, and no fire. God be praised.

There is so much, and so little time. Replenish that inkwell, and simply keep on going...

BlossomSB - That I even noticed the overflowing pan is the first "happenstance" while the outcome is the second.
