|"grammatically perfect" OMG, where's my valium? ;-)
Seriously, I'm in desperate need of focus to finish one particular project so this I will take to heart. :-) Charge me up! Great penning, Sage.

|Self discipline is a great virtue, and when applied to all areas of our life, including our creative and writing abilities. it brings much reward Sage !

|Funny... my tutors have spent a whole year trying to beat the hell outa my FengShui poems, so I hardly equate them with peace at the moment! Ooooo... well this feeds nicely into me control-freak, extravagently policed writing and is just the excuse I'm looking for to go really mad, let it all hang out, and use even more exclamation marks and semi-colons in even shorter, tighter lines. Like Olivia Newton John sewn into her sprayed on Greaselightning poetic pants. Actually, I rather like Sylvia Plath's notion about poetry... that it is like "the glimpse between the opening and the closing of a door"... unless I leave my foot enjambed, reckon I'd be in a state of perpetual lock-out. Very tight here, Sage! Nicely black and white. HNY, LOL K xx|

|I like a bit of chaos. Makes life AND writing exciting and believable. Of course, there is that thought that says, leave sleeping dogs lie. I find myself doing that more and more in these declining years.|

An extremely interesting chapter, Sage.

|"When we arrive at the ending, we will know the beginning." wise words, as we must journey into the vast unknown, in our writing and in our lives, before we can hope to arrive at any understanding of where it is we have been and where we first came from. like the focus on the writing life here, Sage, and a little less chaos and a little more peace in my own writing would be a welcome reward to discipline.
