the thoughts that fill my mind

One of the new things people began to find out in the last century was that thoughts - just mere thoughts - are as powerful as electric batteries - as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison. - The Secret Garden

Reading is exploring. To read is to be taken to another world, another place. Sometimes these worlds are places I thought I wanted to go, but discover that they are no better than the world I left. Other times I find a new world and never want to leave. Books are tools: they can inspire, shelter, and encourage, but they can also hurt, expose and destroy. I think my mind is a precious thing, and I want to feed it but also guard it. As a future writer, I want to entertain, I want to challenge, but most of all, I want to encourage. Until I am ready, I see my goal right now as one of brainstorming. I just finished a story that had the recurring mantra, There is learning in everything. Sometimes the only lesson that can be learned is what not to do, a path not to follow. But just like history, the past shapes the future. The inspiration left by authors of then and now should not be ignored, but recognized and remembered. I try to find things to keep from my reading: memories, ideas, themes, and make them fit into my own scenario. So what is my purpose? This blog will be for reviews, it will be for reflection, and I predict from time to time it will be for outbursts. I am a thinker, I am an explorer, I am an imaginer.
