Your Interesting Candy Shell

A  L  O  H  A !
"She did not talk to
 as if they were
hard shells she had to 
crack open to get inside. 

She talked as if 
she were already
 in the shell. " 

Marita Bonner

"One thing life has taught me:
 if you are interested, 
you never have to look
 for new interests. 
They come to you. 
When you are genuinely
 in one thing, 
it will always lead 
to something 

Eleanor Roosevelt

"The great thing 
is to be saturated
with something-
-that is,
in one way 
or another, with life;
and I chose the form
of my saturation."

Henry James

You're up and walkin' around town early enough to see the sprinklers going! Is that a baby pomegranate opening up too early?

Brian Miller said...

pretty cool that first quote...allowing yourself to go inside their shell and relate to people that way...i try to do that...

One thing really does lead to another. I've always noticed that.

Eleanor knew whereof she spoke; her "being interested" is much like speaking from inside the shell in the first quote. Thanks for sharing these!

There is so much that is fascinating that I suspect I am going to run out of time long before I run out of interest.
