I often start new things, quickly losing sight of how they began – what was their catalyst or triggering action/influence which pushed me in that particular direction.
Anything new we do is rarely an original idea.
Even more rarely OUR OWN original idea. Yet one thing leads to another, things get added, elements get left behind and what remains is original and unique – so it feels new. What comes about this way couldn’t have been created by a team or a committee – it just ‘came to be’ because I/we willed it into existence.
And now, we have that.
That was the easy part.
Tougher part – using our ‘new thang’ or process to make something better, make some money, change someone’s mind, improve our country or change the world.
Hi Mark, We just got back to Calgary. So London is a memory now. As a personal outlet, I too like to write but, not as extensively as you. Two years ago I was invited to join the Magpie Haiku and Tanka poets. This anthology is the result of our efforts. If you are interested in coming to the launch – you are most welcome. You may even know some of the poets. All the best, JR, Calgary, AB
Wow....I love your thoughts!! So introspective … I totally identify with you. Thank u for putting them out there ... helps to sort out the chaos in my ever changing mind as well gives me permission...rather than blame to accept for what is. , U, Toronto, ON
