EDGAR ALLAN POE
Today is my birthday, and I am honored to share it with Edgar Allan Poe, born January 19th 1809. Poe was a brilliant writer, and I love his work. I admire the deep sentiment within his work, which draws you in. His style is not for everyone, it’s sometime long and daunting, but there is beauty laced within the lines that you must keep reading to find.
Quotes by Poe:
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Hauntingly. Mysterious. Beautiful.What are your thoughts on Poe?
You can’t spell Poet without Poe 😉
In honor of his birthday January 15th and the celebration of MLK day:
Via Goodreads: King scholar Clayborne Carson has constructed a remarkable first-person account of Dr. King’s extraordinary life. Beginning with his boyhood, the book portrays King’s education as a minister, his ascendancy as a leader of the Montgomery bus boycott, his pivotal role in the civil rights demonstrations in Washington, D.C.
Rated: 4.6 on amazon.com
This is a great book if you want a deeper level of understanding of Dr. King’s spirit, and his intentions in the Civil Rights Movement.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
Fleeting. Weathered. Blossoming…
Why I Journal:
I am not always particularly good at keeping a Journal. I am however a firm believer in the benefits it provides. I am hoping I will get better at it with time. Most of the time when I journal I am just rambling on aimlessly.
Luckily the point is not to have something eloquent to say, rather to just say something. I believe it helps to un-jumble things in my brain. So hopefully the more unclear, messy, and insensible my writing is, the more organized my thoughts will be afterwards 🙂 I also think it is a tool in helping to get feelings and emotions out before sharing them with other people.
When I do share with other people I want to do so with positive intention.
