I remember that line, or at least, that portion of a line, from Tombstone. The movie about Wyatt Earp starring Kurt Russell, Val Kilmer, Sam Elliott and Bill Paxton.
Men in long black coats.
but I digress...
A reckoning... a time to answer for what you've done and what you've not done...
remember last year when all over blog-land we were all choosing words?
words to inspire, to remind, words to live by?
I had one - Content
"Cheers" looks better to me now though....
but thankfully most days were happy days
however content I've not been
i feel like i lost my way
forgot who i am
and last night I knew I had to figure it out
and in the quiet darkness between dusk and dawn an idea came, slowly at first, but as I thought about it and "knew" the rightness of it, it burst forth and unfurled like a flower of the desert after the one rainstorm of the year...
one word for one whole year is too limiting... I need action... snap, snap, snap
and so I will choose one word each month and then explore it in paint, and paper and fabric and words
really think on it
both what it does mean, and what it could mean
maybe even what it should mean....
words where the meaning seems clear,
but then we find a murky overlay
i love the idea of this - the concentration of it, and have been mulling over all sorts of possibilities
the words that are coming to mind are a little odd though, even for me
but oh, the possibilities
