|This photo is a picture of my favorite grand boy, H. It has nothing to do with today's post. But, I am posting it anyway. Because it's my blog, and I can do that. That's why.|
Today is Sunday Special. Sunday Special is my official day of rest. It is my day special when I work at recharging my personal batteries.
Never mind planet sun is shining brightly and a snowy slope on Butternut Mountain skies the landscape of my brain, my duty today is to honor my writing commitment and do my Sunday Special thing--read, slow walk, no talk, sit in silence, meditate, perhaps sip cup of black coffee, no cream, no sugar, in Starbucks or local library--all the while scribbling on paper napkins, inside a spiral notebook, or making an entry at my favorite BookOrBust blog.
In keeping with my Sunday Special tradition, I share a few quotations. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed collecting and sharing them. I hope they inspire you to perhaps pick up a pen and write something. I hope they cause you to sit and reflect, perhaps put a smile on your face, or simply think.
Happy Sunday Special.
See you in print,
