June is just around the corner heralding America's mental shift from "public-school-time" to "summertime." The sounds of children and birds singing are a reminder of sunshine and growing things. Sensory clues blowing in the wind of past and present time, calling all to fill fountain pens with pungent ink, spread parchment o're cluttered desk to capture rich sensory unleashed.

AND WE QUOTE–

My last page is always latent in my FIRST; but the intervening windings of the way become clear only as I write.

EDITH WHARTON

… this business of becoming conscious, of being a writer, is ultimately about asking yourself, as my friend Dale puts it, How alive am I willing to be?

ANNE LAMOTT

A writer is somebody for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.

THOMAS MANN

It’s much more important to write than to be written about.
