Writer’s Quote Wednesday–Junot Diaz

I’m late getting this done, but then, I’ve been behind most of this week. However, Silver Threading is so kind as to say there’s no rules to this game. And since I’ve had Junot Diaz on my reading list for far too long, this was a great time to catch up on some of his words–even if brief.

Just the fact that you get to live and breathe and interact with the world – that’s pretty marvelous.

And I especially liked this one:

Just the fact that you get to live and breathe and interact with the world – that’s pretty marvelous.

I think I’m going to have to up him to a leading spot on the list.

With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things.

While you’re reading this, snug in your morning rituals, I’m snug on the farm. If you want a view of said farm, go here, or here,  or here. There’s more. All you have to do is search “prairie” or “farm” and you’ll find them. There’s probably links to some of them at the bottom of this post.

That’s where I am now. For two whole glorious and quiet days out of the city.

I’m writing, as you read this, no doubt. And that’s what On Writing is about. Finding the place and the silence and the peace (no Internet, cell phone reception spotty, six miles from the nearest paved road).

But if you’ve read the other posts, you already know that. Imagine me in front of a window looking out on that prairie. That’s where I am. Writing.
