Every bit of knowledge we bring to our fingers is an exploration worth pursuing. The more knowledge we obtain, the more hesitation brought all the same. Balancing self-criticism with self-realization can be independence as Capote explains. We see the dark that resides in ourselves and we garner the light to bring us resolution. Satisfaction is the game we seek to resolve our desires. Learning to be satisfied, understanding we reach a destination, this is our best audition of ourselves. No matter our grievances, let others be your critic and walk away. Let them know your confidence usurps their greatest lie.

“Take a good rest, small bird,” he said.
“Then go in and take your chance like any man or bird or fish.”
–Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea
Me thinks I need to go back and read Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea. It is a short book of wisdom for every person who rises and witnesses the sun and falls asleep to the calm of night. We rock on the waves of our dreams and wake to purpose truth.
“Why do old men wake so early? Is it to have one longer day?”
–Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea
For my brother who loved to fish and my husband who still fishes. Me, I take along a book.
Happy writing, J
