On days that I do not write or speak something profound, memorable, world-changing, or "brilliant," I feel frustrated and wasteful .... How silly of me, after all these years. I should know better ... on oh so many levels and assumptions.
I look back at what others have said and find that it may be enough.
Even that which I have already said may contain something I need to hear and heed.
Sometimes, you wonder. Well, I wonder every day. And it's amazing what unfolds - wondrous things.
Quotes are like leftovers. They may gain flavor and depth over night.
Do not discard them. Take them out. Sniff them. Reheat them. Feast upon them.
