Julia Cameron wrote the following thoughts on Page 223 of her amazing book .. ‘The Right To Write’ ..
Thank You once again Brad 49885 for the gift to me of her book.
“When we start to write, we prime the pump and the flow of ideas begins to move. It is the act of writing that calls ideas forth, not ideas that call forward writing.”
TRUST ME .. PATTI KNOWS .. WHEN I SIT DOWN HERE AT THE KEYBOARD TO WRITE SOMETHING THAT I INTEND TO WRITE .. SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT I PLANNED TO WRITE MAY WELL EMERGE.
Today’s Rhetorical Question : “Does the Shadow Know what’s coming here? I know I don’t!”
THIS I DO KNOW : Today was pretty relaxed until 3pm arrived. Then it went downhill. And? For reasons I am not going to divulge here, I am not going to go into the details thereof.
Whew! Next Monday, the 14th of January, Mike and I head for Novosibirsk.
Well ! Here is some VERY interesting-to-me news.
Danny 48073 has mentioned to both Patti and me that as I continue to head generally West (Irkutsk to Kyzyl to Abakan to Krasnoyarsk to Novosibirsk) I am getting closer and closer to Kazakhstan.
Mike has been notified that the fellowship in Kazakhstan wants to know IF we will do an on-line remote talk! I sit here absolutely and positively amazed at where all of these invitations arise from. Kazakhstan?
How and what are they hearing in Kazakhstan about me? Does the Shadow Know?
For all, and maybe even more, that you may want to know about Kazakhstan here’s your link :
Mercy Me Oh My Goodness! I just added Kazakhstan to my never ending list of categories here on dot.net. Each category can be a primary category in-and-off itself or can be a sub-category to another primary category or even a sub-sub-category.
For instance. The Russian Federation is a primary category.
Irkutsk is a sub-category under the Russian Federation.
Lake Baikal is a sub-sub-category under Irkutsk under the Russian Federation.
In establishing Kazakhstan as a category, I nearly put Kazakhstan under the Russian Federation but suddenly realized that Kazakhstan is an independent nation and Kazakhstan is NOT part of the Russian Federation.
I’ve now written the name Kazakhstan eleven or so times and each time have had to look at it to be sure I am spelling Kazakhstan correctly!
I’ve been told that IF I were to go to Kazakhstan, there are knowledgeable people studying the issue of whether or not I would then be able to re-enter the Russian Federation.
This may seem to some of you like a small matter but, believe thee me, IF I went there and could not return to the Russian Federation it would be a major (words are failing me) issue.
THIS I DO KNOW : In 37 minutes I have got to be somewhere with Mike to try to solve the issue above that I am not free to talk about here on-line!
Smiles from an Amazed Captain and a Bemused Patti.
