September: Art and Quote

Girl on Bear by LR

Girl on Bear by LR

I’ve shared this piece of art before, but I like it and this girl is on an adventure, and I want life to continue to have !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!adventures!

I have this list of quotes by my computer, for reference and for use on this blog.  I don’t remember when or how I put the list together or even who most of the authors are.  In particular for today, Who is Vladimir Mayakovsky?  All I know at this moment, is that these words resonate with me, now.

                  “Formerly I believed books were made like this: a poet came, lightly opened his (or her) lips, and the inspired fool burst into song–if you please!  But it seems, before they can launch a song, poets must tramp for days with callused feet, and the sluggish fish of the imagination flounders softly in the slush of the heart.  And while, with twittering rhymes, they boil a broth of loves and nightingales, the tongueless street merely writhes for lack of something to shout or say.”    ~Vladimir Mayakovsky, The Bedbug and Selected Poetry

Vivid imagery:  “tramp for days with callused feet”, “sluggish fish of the imagination”, “twittering rhymes”,  “tongueless street”:  I’ll be researching Vladimir today….

Embrace your day. LR
