On Writin’ And Livin’ And Laborin’ (September 4, 2017)

. . .

W2       “Seems to me that one is best advised to ‘Live life’ first and foremost.  If the writing thing does not work out, then one has lived life.  If the writing thing does work out, then one can write about the life one has lived.”

W1       “And about the things that terrify you and satisfy you and mystify you and pacify you.”

. . .

W2       “Live and write.  Write and live.  Works for me.  Plays for me.”

W1       “Is writing also living?  . . .  He not busy writing is busy dying?”

W2       “Works for me.”

W1       “Play is for me.”

[See the e-commentary on the art and craft of writing at “Writin’ (February 17, 2014)”, the longing to write at “Writing The Long Song (September 26, 2011)”, the absence of standards and quality today at “On Standards & Quality (July 20, 2015)”, the love of ideas at “A Nerd You Know You Are (June 7, 2010)” and the role of the thinker/writer at “Contrarianism, Revisionism and Iconoclasm:  On The Path To Truth Or Trailing The Truth? (September 19, 2016)” among other e-commentary.]

Bumper stickers of the week:

Live life; life lived

Live Life and Die Death;

Don’t Live Death and Die Life.

Live to learn; learn to live

“The fear of death follows from the fear of life.  A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”  Mark Twain
