T-shirt: “Bookmarks are for quitters.” 😁

I bought a bookmark for Deb; metal, with tassel, engraved, “You are my happy-ever-after!”

Actually, I bought her two (there was a BOGO sale), but she gave one back to me, saying, “Because you are MY happy-ever-after!” 💘

I have a metal bookmark that was a gift years ago. It says, Bon Voyage. I think I was going on a trip and the bookmark might have come with a book? 🤷‍♀️

Love the thoughtfulness of your gift to Deb!

Ahhh! WYSIATI from Meandering Muses, Chapter 25!

WYASATI = What You See Is All There Is

“The even-minded display detached involvement. They observe, ask questions, and calmly keep digging just like Sherlock Holmes.”

Responsive instead of reactive.

Ha-ha! Rip Van Winkel here. Meandering Muses: Inspiration From A To Z??? A pre-publication peek? I like it!

Today’s title reminded me of “A River Runs Through It” from about 30 years ago. While the titles differ slightly I see common ground. Roger Ebert wrote that fly fishing represented life. “If you can do it correctly, to read the river, and the fish, and yourself, and to do what needs to be done without one wasted motion...”

So thanks for shaking the sticks. Our brains really are the first super computers. And don’t require cloud storage or a nuclear power plant to keep it (our brains) powered up.

Einstein: “Energy is neither created nor destroyed. It is only transformed.”

And thanks for going boldly into a page of the (new?) book, parking the triangles for today!

Nope! Post-publication!

The muses and I boldly self-published 3 books in 2021, including Meandering Muses last August. 😊

Wandering Words was published in March 2021 and Flourishing Fictions in December 2021. I was gifted the guidance of two great editors and a superb cover illustrator as collaborators.

I have a linktree page that will lead you yo the books if you are interested:

I watched A River Runs Through It just recently and I loved the film. So many lessons!

“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” -Heraclitus

The above is one of the many lessons…

It just very conveniently also happens to be in Chapter 25. #Interesting 😊

That’s so on me! I think I’m ready to graduate to Very Big Print books! Of course I have a signed copy of “Inspirations from A to Z.” 🤔🤷🏽

As if my eyes stopped at “Meandering Muses.” Some attentive reader you have here!

Could you double the font size for the link tree page? 😂
