Being an Opti-Mystic – Edie Weinstein

About the graphic

Years ago this meme floated around in email then on other social media. I loved the elephant with the bird on his back cruising through the air. I ran across it the other day and had to share.

About the quote

The quote resonated with me as much as the graphic. I found this on Edie Weinstein‘s website: “Edie discovered that the life path we traverse calls on us to become willing to be light-hearted and childlike, not taking ourselves too seriously.” Doesn’t that sound like a great life?

Think I’ll try to be more opti-mystic and focus on possibilities.

About the quote

Elisabeth Elliot went home to glory in 2015. You can read about her amazing life here

She left behind a wealth of devotional material where she shared her godly wisdom and insight. One of her publications was a daily flip calendar titled Keep a Quiet Heart. I believe the flip calendar is out of publication now.I bought mine in 1997. My cherished copy sits on my kitchen window sill where I can read her thought for each day.

That’s where I found this quote. It’s just a true today as when she wrote it.

About the Graphic

The image is a photo by Edie Melson used with special thanks for offering her beautifully paired memes for all to share.

The photo and the quote from E’yen A. Gardner are a perfect match.  Staring into slow rippling water whether a pond or creek or lake or ocean can relax our minds and body and give a sense of peace.

Quotes to Inspire Your Writing – Benjamin Franklin

By |2019-06-17T14:43:24-05:00June 26th, 2019|Wednesday Quote, Wednesday Words of Wisdom, Weekly Quote, writing|1 Comment

About the quote

I love the wisdom and wit of Benjamin Franklin. Wouldn’t we all love to have a do-over of at least some part of our lives?

Franklin suggests correcting faults or varying plot in our stories is an advantage. I would agree. Rewriting or revising is why I love storytelling–I can always change the story until my characters and I are happy with the results.

About the Image: Finnegan MacCool in the wildflowers taken along a Texas hill country road.  As Lady Bird Johnson and her husband, Lyndon Johnson, crisscrossed American on the campaign trail, she saw the opportunity for roadside restoration to bring regional identity to areas that otherwise might be lined with billboards and invasive species.Thanks to their Highway Beautification Act of 1965 drives along highways in the springtime do offer opportunities to stop and snap pictures and be touched by regional flowers.
