Notebook Entry

On an instructional photo trip I suggested to professional photographer Artie Morris that taking a good picture depends a lot on going out to to the field to shoot. In other words: showing up. He readily agreed.
    "When you get up early to take a photo you often see something you've seen before," he told me. "Sometimes you see something you've never seen before. And once in a while you see something that NOBODY has ever seen before. You feel lucky that you're there and ready to take the shot."
      That got me thinking: isn't writing like that, too? When you sit down at the desk you often write stuff you've written before. Sometimes you break into new territory and write something you've never written before. And once in a while you write something truly original, something nobody has ever written before.


  1. I loved this. Sometimes I write something that helps me discover who I am. Now that's a worthwhile discovery.

  2. Thanks, Linda. Glad to hear this resonates with you!

  3. When I write I reveal to myself my inner workings and dialogues...often this is unpleasant...often it's nightmarish. I have received the most reaction, engagement and encouragement when I have revealed intimate details about my thoughts and life...however I struggle with 'what is for me' and 'what is for others'.

    1. Yes, the old "TMI" dilemma? John Lennon once remarked that "the most personal is the most universal." I think we all have those inner voices and impulses, etc.

  4. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
