Mom in Her Writing Nook ...

She was working on the "About the Authors" section of "Echoes Across the Blue Ridge" when I captured this one morning. Though you can't see it, her coffee cup was within gentle reach that morning. Roxie is at her feet.

I've always said that God gave each of us psychic energy way out of proportion with out physical selves.

I look forward to the storm!/Rob

Rob, One step at a time. I'm going to start inviting people to the site. It'll be interesting to see what kind of conversation comes of it. I spoke with Bob Falls and he said he'd sign up. I'll work on more. It'll be interesting.

As for what people are about, well that's part of this discussion. On one level, we each know who we are. On another, it's a constant discovery. We are capable of everything. That's an overwhelming notion when you think about it. No wonder we eat too many donuts.

Jim, I'm hoping people can really let loose in this. And people can be embraced for being different, not conforming.

It kills me when it suddenly comes to me what a particular person is about. I'm talking about people I know and love. Their words and actions--combined with the grooves in my mind--suggest some obvious interpretations. And then, at some moment, the fog clears, and you see the essential situation and wish. That's what a lot of great fiction is about--the stunning discovery is not always horror, as the movies portray--sometimes its heartrending empathy.

So what is it inside the imagination that keeps surprising you? Are our imaginations always going to surprise us? Can we actually choose to notice the surprise when it happens? How does form play into this?
