Daily Thoughts 8/18/2011

I finished reading Stand and Deliver.  There is an excellent reminder that people go nowhere without specific goals in their life.   I also updated the Twitter account and checked on the Facebook account.  We are having the Mount Vernon Writers Network, 8/18/2011 from 6:00-8:00 p.m..  I think it will go very well because there is a little bit more networking and preparation put into the program itself.  The Mount Vernon Writers Network is on Facebook.  I am rather enjoying it being held at the library.

I also spent some time looking at the databases.

The Writers Networking Event went very well.  We are planning for an outing to Pelham, New York to Lola's Tea House which has a writers group as well.  We are going to discuss why we write.  I read two poems including:

Blue Sky Thinking

Sky blue thinking is as vast as open fields
where we touch the earth.

Blue sky thinking is wide as the blue sky
where we touch the heavens

Sky blue thinking is moving past hills
rolling on a slow train

Blue sky is endless open vistas
flying on a fast plane

Sky blue thinking is like a robins egg
solidifying our reality

Blue sky thinking is an indstrial diamond
the world of tomorrow

Sky blue thinking promises the new
Blue sky thinking lives in the now

Blue sky and sky blue are the same color.

I read some more of Make Yourself Unforgettable.  There are some interesting sections on listening and being relaxed.  Right now, I am reading about patience.
