Photo and Poem



Plain Language


You want to write?


Don't rack your brain


Just keep it from the heart


and make it plain.








I almost forgot...Peace~

So true. I do my best when I am within my inner zone.
I just need to find the time to focus and write.

Sista Gp-
Ain't it the truth. Where did time go? Welcome. :)

Amen!

Ciao Stephen!
The stuff you saw in my last post wasn't mine. It's a pro cover of a fantasy novel published in Italy.
I'm in volounteer association that works to find money for the people of Komuge, a small town in Tanzania.

On sunday there will be the Book Convention in Torino, the most important of Italy. And the writer of that novel will sign some print of the cover to gain money for Africa.
I organized the whole stuff. This is why I put that on my blog! ;-D

Is that a Charles Bibb hanging on the wall? If you check my Bday photos I have the coveted "Sweet Lillies" hanging in all her glory.

Lovely poem.

That is very touching. I mean it really hits home. Makes you think how not thinking is the best way to write. Way to keep it real! I will be back now often! I am so happy to be back! I missed you Stephen! Thought often of the blog, just did not have the access to get to it!

I thought that it look different from your stuff, but...it was still cool. Good to see you in these parts.

Lovebabz-
Yes, that's Bibb's piece, Jazzman. It's an open edition, but it's signed by Bibb.

Christina-
Thank you. It came to me in traffic of all places. :)

BossMack-
Thanks, brother.

Faith-
First, it's a pleasure to see you. Thank you for answering my request to stop by. Yes, thinking too much will leave you just thinking too much. Educators call it Metacognition or thinking about thinking. :)

Yasmeen-
You can digg it, huh? Thank you. :)

Stephen Bess said...

I think that Miles makes a better brain rack. :)

Tryphina said...

Good advise, I love the poem. You write, ooops you are right:) Metacognition is a recipe for cognitive impairment. You saying don't rack my already wreck' brain right? Write!

May I have an autographed copy of your work please Mr Bess.
