Hi everyone. I'm currently reading a book on writing published in 1938. The title is If You Want to Write and the author is Barbara Ueland. I'll just post this snippet from the book that struck me:

"If when I walk I look at the sky or the lake or the tiny, infinitesimally delicate, bare, young trees, or wherever I want to look, and my neck and jaw are loose and and I feel happy and say to myself with my imagination 'I am free,' and 'There is nothing to hurry about,' I find then that thoughts begin to come to me in their quiet way."

Rahfie, that quote struck a chord with me!  Thank you for sharing it.  I looked for the book on Amazon, and the author is actually Brenda Ueland.  4 1/2 star rating out of 87 reviews for another of her books.   Others like her, too.
