Wednesday Wisdom: Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury again

“Just write every day of your life.
Read intensely. Then see what happens.
Most of my friends who are put on
that diet have very pleasant careers.”

Wednesday Wisdom: Ernest Hemingway

Celebrated my birthday this last weekend…

He pulled out the box from a hiding place behind the sofa,

and my heart skipped a beat–I’ve seen old typewriter boxes before.

I opened the mysterious box, and this was the paper

queued up in the 1950s Remington typewriter.

And after having typed on this marvelously noisy beast,

(at odd hours, much to the annoyance and amusement of my family)

I now better understand the beauty of this quote by Ernest Hemingway:

“There is nothing to writing. 

All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”

Wednesday Wisdom: M. C. Escher

Which reality is actually more powerful:

that of the present, instantly absorbed by our senses and discernible,

or the memory of what we experienced previously?

Is the present truly more real than the past?

I really do not feel capable of answering this.
