Datebook Dump

And it still won’t get us up-to-date.

The quote: “If you take the letters of the word ‘coat’ and rearrange them, and replace the ‘c’ with a ‘g,’ you get the word ‘ogat.’ If you rearrange that you get the word ‘goat.’ Amazing!” —Kevin Cornell (

The quote: “While the fates permit, live happily; life speeds on with hurried step, and with winged days the wheel of the headlong year is turned.” —Seneca (5 BC – 65 AD)

The quote: “The world is not yet exhausted: let me see something tomorrow which I never saw before.” —Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

I didn’t do any of the things listed on the 19th. The concert turned into dinner because the weather was bad.

The quote: “Skill without imagination is craftsmanship and gives us many useful objects such as wickerwork picnic baskets. Imagination without skill gives us modern art.” —From Artist Descending a Staircase by Tom Stoppard

The quote: “Hold on cause the world will turn if you’re ready or not.” —K.T. Tunstall

There was far more going on than these pages would indicate. Really, there was.

The quote: “An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is an adventure wrongly considered.” —G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)

I did make it to the Port Clinton Art Festival. I didn’t do any drawing for the Sketchcrawl, but I gave myself credit for doing something “artsy.”

The quote: “I might repeat to myself slowly and soothingly, a list of quotations beautiful from minds profound—if I can remember any of the damn things.” —Dorothy Parker (1893-1967)

Sorry, no time for quotes!

Still no time…

Finally found time for a bike ride and a BBQ! But not enough time to farm a quote.

The quote: “You’re only given a little spark of madness. you mustn’t lose it.” —Robin Williams

No problemo, I think I have more than one little spark. ;-D

The quotes: “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society.” —Mark Twain (1835-1910)

“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for—in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.” —Ellen Goodman

The quote: “Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.” —Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945)

I believe I was feeling some relief and optimism at this point.

The quotes: “Let not the sands of time get in your lunch.” —National Lampoon

“The whole life of man is but a point of time; let us enjoy it.” —Plutarch (46-120 AD)

The poem: “To see a world in a Grain of Sand,/ And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,/ Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,/ And eternity in an hour.” —William Blake (1757-1827)

There will be more datebook posts…have no fear. Isn’t this enough for one post?!?
