Thursday Quote Du Jour #6: Apropos

by Janie Jones

This one came to me through WordPress as I posted my last post.  It made me laugh at the timing as well as the accuracy of the quote.

The scariest moment is always just before you start.

Stephen King

Monday fall semester starts.  My biggest fear?  More than one of my classes get dropped.  Well at least that’s my biggest school related fear.

Cross your fingers for me, if you will, and let’s hope none of my classes are dropped.  On my part, I’m do my best to muster enough hope and belief that this year is going to be better than last.

Thursday Quote Du Jour #5 on Hope

by Janie Jones

I have this short piece of prose (or does this count as poetry?  I so couldn’t tell you) on a beautiful print hanging on my living room wall.

Hope is a thing with feathers

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune

Without the words

And never stops at all.

-Emily Dickenson

I don’t know why I like it so well.  Maybe it has to do with the picture it is printed on.  Or maybe just because it seems, well, so hopeful.
