the empty page

Originality is nothing but judicious imitation. The most original writers borrowed one from another.
Voltaire (1694-1778) philosopher and writer

... okay, now I'm back! however, it might be a while before I get my blogging mojo back!

Jealousy really does work the opposite of the way you want it to.

DUH!!

Glad you're home safe and sound, back at the blog grind. YES!!

Welcome back, Kim! Hmmm... It seems that the page presented by that wall isn't exactly empty!

Sandra Leigh said...

Welcome back. Don't worry about your blogging mojo. It's right there.

Hmm. I'm still pondering "The pursuit of happiness is the source of all unhappiness." I think that's probably an old paradigm.

I'm curious about that building - Is the type really on there or added later in phtoshop. anyway, I like the idea of talking buildings.

yayyy! she's back!
That is NOT an empty wall, for sure.

Voltaire? yep. You admire a writer, you want to be just like him/her when you grow up. But since nobody can be anybody else, you end up doing variation sixteen trillion on a given theme. That's the whole fun of writing!

We want to hear all about your trip(s) but that's ok - ease back in, petite souris, we don't mind :-)

even though I love being on a wander it's great to be home.

thanks everyone for welcoming me home and your kind words, now I have to do a bloggyhood wander and catch up on all I've missed!


with respect to the picture, the words are painted on the building....if memory serves me correctly it's a store that sells outdoor gear about a half block from the whole foods world headquarters and marketplace.

definitely words to live by on this wall!

okay off to check some of your blogs!!!
