Breaks the spell of Writers Block
Staring at a blank page is like staring into a snowfield. The snow, untouched by civilization and unmarked by living creatures, blinds you for a few minutes, it glistens reflecting subtle shades of pure white and rainbows at odd angles. If you stare at the snow too long, you get lost in the interplay of light and shadow.

As the day wears on, you become awestruck at the beauty of the snow's perfection. You marvel at the way an oak tree cast its ebony shadow across the pure white snow. You watch the tree's shadow change, grow and shrink, as Earth turns and the sun moves from morning to evening. If you stand out in the snow too long without moving, you risk snow bite or freezing.

If you are fortunate, a red fox will walk across your line of sight. The fox will leave his footprints written in the snowfield. As you watch the fox move, the spell holding you in one spot staring at the snow is broken. You are free to go inside out of the cold and out of danger.


I must say,
writing 500 words a day
isn't difficult,
unless I'm attempting to write
on a single subject.

On Monday, October 28, 2013, I began posting my weekly goals at "Weekly Goals. On Tuesday, October 29, 2013 I began keeping track of may accomplished goals in this journal.

"O SON OF BEING! Bring thyself to account each day ere thou art summoned to a reckoning;
for death, unheralded, shall come upon thee and thou shalt be called to give account for thy deeds."
Bah'u'll'h The Hidden Words of Bah'u'll'h, Part I.'From the Arabic, #31, page 11

'Heinlein's Rules for Writers

         Rule One: You Must Write
         Rule Two: Finish What Your Start
         Rule Three: You Must Refrain From Rewriting, Except to Editorial Order
         Rule Four: You Must Put Your Story on the Market
         Rule Five: You Must Keep it on the Market until it has Sold'

Robert A. Heinlein

It is enjoined upon every one of you to engage in some form of occupation, such as crafts, trades and the like. We have graciously exalted your engagement in such work to the rank of worship unto God, the True One. Ponder ye in your hearts the grace and the blessings of God and render thanks unto Him at eventide and at dawn. Waste not your time in idleness and sloth. Occupy yourselves with that which profiteth yourselves and others. Thus hath it been decreed in this Tablet from whose horizon the day-star of wisdom and utterance shineth resplendent.
Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah Revealed After the Kitab-i-Aqdas, Pages 21-29: gr 32

I changed the way I did entries in this book several times. Beginning on March 21, 2018 the entries will cover the topics of spiritual, inspirational, and religions. However, the genres it will be under are Women's, Inspirational, and Spiritual with a tag of Religious.

a memory of my grandfather
raking and burning leaves
before the arrival
of the year's first snow.

Spiritual Happiness

"Spiritual happiness is eternal and unfathomable. This kind of happiness appeareth in one's soul with the love of God and suffereth one to attain to the virtues and perfections of the world of humanity.

Therefore, endeavor as much as thou canst in order to illumine the lamp of thy heart with the light of love."

Bahá’í Writings

The Love of God8

It is the love of God
that encourages us
to develop spiritual perfections
and virtues.

It is the love of God
that ignites
the lamp of the soul
with spiritual happiness.

Submitted to "Spiritual Newsletter (September 18, 2019): Sophy, Maybe the third bricklayer considered his job as a means of worshiping God. Baha'u'llah in his Tablet Glad-Tidings (The twelfth Glad-Tidings): "It is enjoined upon every one of you to engage in some form of occupation, such as crafts, trades and the like. We have graciously exalted your engagement in such work to the rank of worship unto God, the True One..." The idea that work is worship of God changes a person's attitude about any job they hold.

Beautiful Sunday
a partly cloudy sky,
with a slight wind.

Pigeons have returned
to their nests,
no sparrows are singing,
the afternoon sun
cast shadows
across the sidewalk.

Facebook Status Update

Fear of Friday the 13th is either Paraskevidekatriaphobia or Friggatriskaidekaphobia. Don't be afraid of big words, even those you can't pronounce.

Friday at last
time to rest--
or at least pause--
from workweek stress.

‘Idál (Justice), 4 ‘Izzat (Might) 176 B.E. - Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Facebook Status Update

I'm so tired of logging into Facebook and finding out that someone from the east has attempted to log into my account, which forces me to change my password. The only advantage I can see to that is, at least, it's keeping my brain active remembering the new password. This wasn't the rant I intended for today.

Pushing Through Writer's Block12

The words,
where did they go
are the hidden in the snow
covering both subject and theme.

Sometimes
that's how it seems;
don't give up
instead begin to write
whatever is on your mind.

The only way
to overcome writer's block
is to push through it.

Today I am thankful ...
         *BulletV* ...for fresh brewed coffee on this beautiful Thursday morning.
         *BulletV* ...that I have 681 in my Survey Junkie account.
         *BulletV* ...for the chocolate milk I had for lunch.
         *BulletV* ...that my Bank of America account is not overdrawn today.
