Follow Your Bliss




If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are — if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.

On Writing



Eliot on “Our difficulties of the moment”.
I am always thinking in the back of my mind, there’s something always going on back there. I am always working, even if it’s sort of unconsciously, even though I’m carrying on conversations with people and doing other things, somewhere in the back of my mind I’m writing, mulling over. And another part of my mind is reviewing what I’ve done.  ~ T. S. Eliot ~

A Writer

 
 
A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which
to work will die without putting a word on paper.

Belong to the World.


You never intended to be in this world.

But you’re in it all the same.

So why not get started immediately.

I mean, belonging to it.

There is so much to admire, to weep over.

Dogs are such agreeable friends;
they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms

On Writing

Tennessee Williams

I asked Tennessee for advice on writing. He said keep everything very simple and straightforward; be honest to yourself. Although he didn't speak very much, Tennessee noticed everything and felt everything. I think that's what I learned from him: how to be an observer.
