Turning It Over in My Mind

For the first time in my life, since the first church message board started putting up adages to edify us all (or get us to go to church), I found one to be profound and thought-provoking.

It read:

The soil does not get plowed
By turning it over in one's mind.

Well, hallelujah! Finally somebody--or some church pastor--is getting me off my duff and working. In the three days since I have seen that sign, I have finished the last of the painting, unpacked the last box, and cleaned up my whole house.

Now I can write. And that means you will see me a whole lot more often. Once I've completed some writing for the day, I'll be checking in here.

Hope you come back and visit as I rev it all up again! I have two play ideas, four novels to revise, and another five to write (so far). Lots of work, but finally I can do it!


  1. I'll be waiting when you come back to plow the soil. :)

    Happy to hear you are finished with your painting. Like Picasso is.


  2. I remember Sampson saying something about someone plowing in his field just before he killed a thousand men with the jawbone of an ass.

    That has no relevance to you finishing getting your house ready for it to become a home, but that's the kind of thing those quirky little church message boards make me think of.

  3. Wisdom from a church, eh? Hmm...
