Fish Should Learn to Walk — 6 Comments

  1. To the best of my knowledge, both are entirely original. I hope you have a great day in that new apartment; that answers a question I had, about whether you’d gotten through the move in one piece; very good to know you did.

  2. A few weeks ago, I shared a “Thought for Today” with my one and only sister-in-law:

    Learning to identify your blessings
    must precede counting them.

    And then, recently, I’ve thought of a postscript to that:

    Counting them isn’t even all that important; eventually the number gets too large to remember.

    • That’s a great quote. SO is the whole thing yours? if i quote it, i want to make sure credit goes to proper person.

  3. I know who SHE is, of course. The news is wonderful, and it’s really good to “see” you moving past those seven weeks, Jae. And what a surprise to hear about the writing project you’ve begun together. Two of my favorite authors, working on a project together: now that’s something! Will it be for publication? I like to say there’s no proof that the future exists, that it’s a fantasy, because my own introspection leads me to this: if you divide your waking consciousness into roughly two categories, you find, on the one hand, states which you basically just existed through without really having been totally “present”, without having really “identified” your state of consciousness in a way that, potentially, could become and remain a memory (the common phrase is “going through the motions”), and on the other hand, just the opposite: you were fully “aware” in the present; you self-identified the state, and thus it potentially could become and remain a memory. In both cases, those states have already moved into the past, while you ignored the true present as it moved inexorably on; no matter how sublime the state was, no matter whether or not you regard it as a “vision of the future”, it is already in the past. So that’s my introspection. Anyway, I wish for both of you to truly find out if you are compatible. I guess I’d say that “destiny” is what you make, through your actions in the present, and actions go through cycles of “easy as pie” and the opposite: tough and painful. Focusing on the positive, something easier said than done during the tough and painful times, is the ticket.

    • I figured you’d put that together. The project, will of course be published, we can’t help ourselves. It’s brand-new right out of the box though, so not sure how long it will take. We both have our other projects–her, these days, more than me…she’s on fire with her writing and tippy-tap-typing her fingers to cute little stumps. It will certainly be announced and advertised when we have something, you can bet on it.

      What a wonderfully thought-provoking post, Laura Jane. I think i might have to respond in the form of another post….am taking notes on it as we speak.

      Thanks for your support and encouragement and thoughtful input….I’m sure I’ll post about what you said in the next day or so.
