Present Tense

"Whatever you're meant to do, do it now. 
The conditions are always impossible."

—Doris Lessing

  1. And that is the damn truth. I don't care what you're talking about doing- it's the truth. From having a baby to writing a book to starting a diet. The conditions are never right.
    Beautiful sky.

  2. I so totally agree with that - have come to that realisation too after reading "The Wisdom of No Escape", you just have to do what you were going to do and don't make the excuses. I am the worst at that - have been telling everyone that I need to get a POD for the backyard so I can go back to writing my novel, but of course I can do it right here at my desk

  3. Not to pat myself on the back, but I can't tell you how many people have a book in their head and are amazed that I've been able to get a few out. There's nothing special about me, I just parked my a** on a chair and started work. There is no excuse and no time like the present.

  4. Just lovely. Both the quote and the picture.

  5. I love this and love that picture. Yes. What Sister Moon said.

  6. yep. or as Nike says, just do it. but, overall, i prefer Doris Lessing.
