Want to learn something today?

28 Sep

We are all writing something.  Especially when we’re not actually writing—

All moments are tied in some way.

What happens in a classroom is a microcosm for ‘out there’.  That’s why this matters.

You learn by teaching yourself and letting the moment education you on YOU.

Kerouac reminds us that there’s more than just ‘so much to learn out there’, as so many say.  By saying “so much”, you infer a quantity, a set amount.  Knowledge is always immune to limit, number, anything set.

Make it not-work.

Be creative…

doing nothing’s what you have to do to know what you need to do.  

The best writing, at times, is penned internally when you’re not materially writing.

Sit, stop, breathe, see, listen…

That passing car or plane flying over your house could answer every question you had, have, will have.

Opennes is onus.

Don’t let your days off be

story of stories.  Even, and especially, what you think is insignificant is tremendously valuable and promising.  Right now, I’m having an iced coffee, sitting at one of those small square tables at the Hopper Starbucks.  The significance?  I’m collecting myself, my thoughts and my character, ideas and swimming, skipping in possibilities.  I’m alive–  Better, I’m mentally alive.  All the possibilities can be brought to actuality.  Which do I want?  Why not all?  Why not treat yourself to everything you want?

Be tireless.  Use and mold every moment to be your own.  The story and all the stories within it, like RIGHT NOW, are yours… are valuable, are more than enough to get you where you want to be.

Enjoy your day.  Be creative, happy, and free.

humorous.  To be demonstrative of hunger and pursuit and actually acquire is worthy of study.  Be your professor, a student of your Self– study your habits and actions, enjoy your strengths and follies.  Everything is meant to come together for us.  We merely have to be more perceptive of our innate promise.  Do not want or wish.  Hungry, pursue, and establish your echo.

Sylvia Plath used her own story, her own life, as the nucleus of her creativity.  She knew her own story, her character, but she still had her struggles with it till her last day.  How well do you know yourself?  If the caterpillar in Wonderland asked you, “WHO ARE YOU?”, would you have an answer?  And if so, where would you start in telling your story or even providing some short, encased description?  This question is something that all writers, students, anyone claiming to be mentally alive, should pose to themselves.  And, repeatedly so the understanding is an understanding firm, and always reinforcing identity.  And, freedom.

So…. YOU, are whom?

What is YOUR story?
