Is it any wonder I like to hang out with trees and streams? People… and muses… so often contradict themselves. Calliope listened to her inner dialogue and sketched needles with an HB pencil on a pine she’d drawn.
Urania read aloud from Typist’s social media feeds, “Extraordinary results come from ordinary people with uncommon consistency. Success is never owned, it is rented… and the rent is due every day.” She scratched her neck viciously at the thought of two un-shipped 3musesmerge letters in the past week.
Thalia sipped her homemade latte, which was really regular ‘ole coffee with a splash of half&half. “Rest and be thankful. William Wordsworth,” the Muse of Wit sighed.
“Honestly!” Calliope put her hands over her ears. “You two are like the billboards we saw along the highway on our drive. Reading them, I felt as if marijuana, whiskey, and wine are in a playoff game with addiction support services.” The Muse of Harmony held up her nature scene for the other two muses to see. “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. Ralph Waldo Emerson.”
A question and a few words from Typist:
Are humans part of nature?
This question is a favorite of mine.
The wedding was great! Beauty, love, food, a little dancing, and cake!
Before the festivities, I enjoyed a wonderful stroll on a boardwalk through a cedar swamp. Without the constructed walkway there is no way we could have ventured through the boggy, mossy, wet terrain. An informational sign indicated that an early developer tried to fill in the swamp so that he could build on the land. When it became clear that nature was having none of his ambitious plan, he shifted gears and set about restoring the swamp and making it accessible for humans to enjoy.
Reinvention is a core competency?
Oh! And today’s title… gainsay is a synonym of contradict.
I’m grateful to learn something new everyday. :)
