Daily Diversion #88: Ghostly Church

“Miracles occur,

If you dare to call those spasmodic

Tricks of radiance miracles. The wait’s

begun again,

The long wait for the angel,

For that rare, random descent.”-Sylvia Plath

      • Who knows how much more she could have written and how far she could have gone in her work? I know she was desperately depressed; I have just recently begun to appreciate how raw and open her poetry was.


      • I try not to, mostly because it takes up too much time. I’m selfish enough to want to spend the brain power on myself. But the what-if game is definitely compelling!


      • I am reading the new book “Quiet” by Susan Cain about introverts and extroverts. Introverts are more likely to ask “what if”. And I was asking that this morning, in my quiet studio: what if I do something this way? And in my quiet, introverted way, taking risks, which is what extroverts do.


      • I am a huge introvert, actually. I have stopped randomly and recklessly asking “what-if” because that, coupled with my OCD, does not a good combination make. Left unattended, it would cripple me, so I have to be more controlled than is my inclination when I ponder such things. It is a weapon I wield with great care now, but the results are much more satisfying for me personally and professionally. Plus, I am still sane this way. It is my own personal win. 🙂
