Notable Quotes

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
--Isaac Asimov

Ties

Every day there is a new thread. One goes to work. One for each resident, too. A thick rope ties me to my girlfriend. And don't forget the kids. The brother that won't talk to me and the one that does, once in a while. What did I forget?

Oh, the dogs, friends, and in-laws. Can't forget the bills. That is made of metal, more molten by the day. As I move towards one, the rest twist and turn, pinch and pull. Strangest of all, I feel them through an electronic void, tugging from bloggers all around. At every beat, each one becomes more firmly entwined in my heart.

My pulse is only the melody of tugs on a line.

Came here through Carter's blog, but I'm pretty sure I've been here before.
This time I'll be sure to return.

Beautiful post. That last line... wow!

How true, Heather. You and Carter didn't team up on purpose on this thread did you? He took your imagery and expanded it beautifully to form a lovely duet of words. That pulse has a beautiful melody. Do everything you can to keep it playing.
