Bending the rules for the sake of art?

I will be the first to admit that my knowledge of grammar is not polished. However, it does allow me to construct sentences that make sense…unless I get into “ramble mode”. That’s when, even I tend to cringe at how convoluted my sentences can get. I can’t help it…most times. That’s the way my mind works. It’s not only a monkey but a contortionistic one at that.

A quote from Brida

6544975-_uy200_Brida is a book by Paulo Coelho. I bought it quite a few years ago and like most of Paulo Coelho’s books, only when the time is right do I usually reach out for his books. I still have three of his books sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. Brida was one of the “hardest” books I’ve read, because it scared me. I don’t know why, but Brida reminded me of me. And that to me, was scary. I’m glad to say though, that I did complete the book and though I have not gone back to it, it’s still one of my favourites from this author.

Quote: Traveler’s Notes from The Map

Ah…it’s December 🙂 Back to regularly scheduled posts every Sundays and Wednesdays! Yay for routine 😉

This post was originally meant to be posted earlier this week but Sage who is an awesome writer of terrific poems wrote one specially because I requested it and I *had* to share it.

On the day this post got written, I decided to “go with the flow” and picked up the book nearest to me and opened a random page to get a nice, simple quote.

Sometimes, Life is really quite “haha” funny because the book nearest to me was The Map by Colette Baron-Reid and the random page wasn’t so much a quote as well…you’ll see.

There is a line in a poem which goes: Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we first learn to deceive, by Walter Scott.

I honestly can’t remember how many times or even where I’ve seen that line, but as I sat thinking about how to start this post, it came floating from the depths of my mind. It feels like a good line to start with so I’m going with it.

Powerful Me, Powerful You, Powerful Us

I want to share with you a short excerpt from the book Insomnia by Stephen King. It was the second reading for me , the first time being a couple of years ago. I can’t remember if the impact of this was as profound as it was then, but I will tell you that this time it felt like a pretty big brick hit me right in the middle of my eyes! Thankfully it was just a metaphorical brick, so no injuries were actually sustained 😉
