Writerly Wednesday ~ If I were a Nietzschean...

(source)
I'm back!!  (Sort of...)  Hello, my bloggy friends!  Hope the past few weeks and holidays have been good to you - and PRODUCTIVE!!!  Have you all been getting a ton of writing/reading/editing done?

I'm back from a recent blogcation and actual vacation to B.C. Canada.  Enjoyed some poutine.  Saw a mama black bear and her three adorable cubs, up close!!  Paid 12% tax on EVERYTHING!  (B.C.'ers...how do you do it?)  I watched fireworks on Canada Day and absolutely drank in my beautiful, gorgeous surroundings.  Trust me - I've got plenty of new pics for Find the Story Fridays!!

Otherwise, I'm a little unprepared for my Writerly Wednesday today.  So, I thought I'd leave you with writing quote.  Not sure it's my absolute favorite, but the idea/image behind it is interesting.  Also, I've been watching FAR too many reruns of Andromeda lately.  So, obviously, when I stumbled across the quote author's name... I had to run with it.  Here you go:

Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?



~Friedrich Nietzsche

Til Friday...  :)

Love the quote. Do you need to take a vacation to get over your vacation? Sounds like you had fun.

Karen Walker said...

12%! Sheesh. I thought the taxes in Chicago were bad when I visited. Glad you had such a wonderful time!

Madeline Bartos said...

I wish I could visit Canada, glad you had fun! It must have been awesome to see black bears up close. I love the quote. :)

Donea Lee said...

Alex - thanks! And yes, 12% is definitely steep!

Donna - I think everyone needs a vacation from their vacation, lol! Sleeping in seemed preferable to going back to work, that's for sure...

Karen - thanks!

Madeleine - dancing with a pen is indeed a cool image.

Tracy - thanks! Just hoping the saddle wants me back in it!

Kari - ok, so - note to self. Bring extra cash when visiting BC and Chicago... :)

Madeline - the black bears were definitely cool to see. I'll post pics soon!

Thanks, everyone!! Glad to be back! :)

welcome back. I personally think I would die if I went on a blogcation :) Did you bring us souvenirs and presents? :)

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi Donea. Welcome back!

Jeanne said...

Welcome back. Sounds like a wonderful vacation to me down here in hot South FLorida. Wondering if you took the wiener dog. Our wiener dog is fine and you can actually see her in the 2 new videos I have created for YouTUbe on No Impact Workout Videos for the Baby Boomer. Maggie finds her way in one of them. My cats also have cameo appearances.

Nice quote. South African VAT is 14%. :-D

Revisions are... coming along, although the added pressure of subtracting two weeks from my goal isn't helping my progress.

:-)
