Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Insecure Writer's Support Group

The brainchild of Alex Cavanaugh, the 
purpose of the Insecure Writer's Support Group is: to share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Posting is the first Wednesday of every month.

You can sign up HERE.

 The trouble is you think you have time.   Buddha

Anyone besides me guilty of thinking that? Come on, raise your hands, you know you are.

You do know, don't you? that time doesn't exist. It's a figment of our imaginations. Yet we persist in believing in it. We'll do this, that or the other, tomorrow or in a few minutes. But the truth is, there is only the present, the now. Time, like Salvador Dali's watch, isn't what is seems.

The saying, "There is no time like the present," is a true statement.

Now, this moment, this instant, is the only time we have. So let us be about doing and being in the present, for the past is gone and future (as far as we're concerned) doesn't exist.

And while you're busy living in the present, remember to HAVE FUN!


  1. Good point! We are only promised today.

  2. I'd be really happy if time ceased to exist for a while.

  3. Time is my greatest enemy and my dearest friend.

  4. Yes! I love this. Now if I just didn't keep obligating my limited (not real) time. ;)

  5. Sometimes we forget that! :) I do love Dali's stuff.

  6. The present is a gift, no? A literal present.

  7. I love Dali - he's one of my favorite painters, and definitely my favorite surrealist. I make sure I go out and forget about work once a week. Thanks for the advice! :-)

  8. I recognize this more and more. Time isn't something I have at all. I'm in love with that image, btw. Perfect.

  9. Trying to 'be in the moment'. Thanks for the warmth if only in pictures. I'm freezing here today, so far the high has been -2.

  10. Love Salvador Dali's timepiece! It shocks me. A clock as a fluid object. Sitting on a solid natural object. It's perfect but yet viscerally strikes me as bizarre. And our life is only time that we make of what we will. Or what we think we have to. But it's still filled with choices. Our choices. Either passive or active, misguided or well-researched.

    You've made me think!

  11. This is so true. And hard to remember when we're so busy. Thanks for reminding us.

  12. Hi, Bish. Great reminder. We need to live in the present. Not dwelling in the past, because we can't change that. And not dwelling about what might happen in the future, because that just causes us to waste what we do have - the present!

  13. This is true. I keep thinking and talking about time and wondering how to maximize it. But it's great to enjoy things in the moment.
