Seeing The Light

I need to visualize the short story, draw it, see or show it, even when I tell it.

Like a movie, like a story, this is life or is it the other way around?

Can a writer alter his trait?

The short story is in my beholding eye.

Imitation is art because you can show and tell it.

Life can only be expressed through the will.

A decision needs to be made to move foreword.

And some mistakes happen along the way.

Life is about success and failure.

Many failures need to take place when the blueprint is unavailable for guidance.

The best blueprint I see is when I become aware of who I am in this moment.

These snap shots add to being alive and using the proper impressions.

The art work is just a beautiful story:  the truth.

It is my pleasure to attend to both in my lifetime.

Better to bloom late than not at all!

 

Moral Crosswords

What is the proper use of impressions?

Take any feeling and assess its value.

For example, I feel good about writing this poem.

Will it do me or others harm?

Not yet, at least I am unaware.

Am I doing it out of a craving or unnecessary want?

No, I need the practice, for myself and others.

Am I aware of any other necessary action?

I need to edit it.

Am I aware of any other reasons or beliefs?

Not at present, but there are plenty from my past.

Are there any other changes?

I just need to publish.

This kind of moral inventory is what is meant by learning to use the ‘proper use of impressions .’

Writing: poetry, short story, letters, essay, prose, play, report, journal, notes and exercise…

Organic writing is good with the right tutor and a fun creative writing class.

Pen pals help write letters.

A journal is an alternative to thinking and talking.

The first essay is done before school.

Prose and plays and reports make note taking better than going to a lecture.

Exercise is all about practice writing from prompts and make believe or brainstorming and innovative idea.making.

Write your heart out.

Writing

Being a lifelong learner is easer when I write

It is as functional as my practice.

I write to gain more perspectives and to make directions ,notes and to do things more manually.

I appreciate people who write and do screen play,as artists, but everyone needs to write as a learning tool.

See what I did there,

I am trying to use the same formate as “Drawing”.

Ideally, we need many tools to build a good mind and stay a lifelong learner.

So let’s think outside the box.

The reasons I write and draw is to become a critical thinker, integrate theory with practice and explore to discover.

Art may imitate life, but writing and drawing builds a better mind that does both.

Saturday Night Live

Moments thread together to make my universe.

Mindfulness reminds me to be present here tonight.

My character is somewhat reminiscent of my father’s,

I too liked to dream.

To build this bridge from my past to the future,

I will speak loud and clear.

I am speaking for all those who dream but does not let them be our masters!

To put this in context, Rudyard Kipling wrote to his son as a father.

I am writing loudly but I am not sermonizing to anyone.

Tonight is bent to my will in the same way I try to live.

Use the proper use of impressions and do no harm.

In my case, I may keep a few people awake because I sound so booming or brash.

I could be at a star party: Perseus Meteor Shower 2018.

Instead, I am reading and writing up a storm!

Keep Earning Your Living and keep writing your life.

To do a job for money,

To do a job to live.

To keep at writing when no one likes it or accepts it or even acknowledges it.

Or substitute what you love for writing: polo, finger painting, giraffe necks, cold steel, pins, people, loved ones, the ideas, being alive…

Traipsing through the worlds, the ways, the wandering of an interested and curious fellow.

Sinful Confessions

I love gadgets.

I have always wanted an Apple Watch ( and recently a Ticwatch E).

Me, me, me, I, I,I,want, want, want,

I’ve watched so many YouTube vids, and ads from Apple and Google, but I am saying no.

My life is staying lean.

I flee the consumer scene.

My writing is first and foremost in my mind.

My health is still running a good maintenance program.

I work hard everyday.

I have a need for speed.

Still struggling with desire.

Mindful

Think about what you want to write a poem with in this session.

Your answer is ‘mindful’.

I am being mindful.

How does it feel or what is different after repeating the affirmation a few times?

Let yourself pause to collect any awareness.

This session will only take 5 minutes, but if you like you can continue after you are done.

Do you feel or what is different after repeating the affirmation a few times?

I have been meditating for at least a few years and I always feel more relaxed after a mindfulness meditation like this one.

I also believe being mindful about my writing is just the right way to write.

Harlan Ellison

Master SF writer is being remembered and respected for the work he did over his lifetime.

Many believe his character reflected his own ‘angry young man’.

If so, perhaps the torch will be passed to another in society to befriend that segment of the population.

He wrote about diverse subject matter and never tired from using his talents in screen writing and articles.

A great work that will continue to be read and watched by many.
