In Strunk and White’s Elements of Style, White mentions Strunk’s Rule # 11. “Make definite assertions…He scorned the  vague, the colorless, the irresolute. He felt it was worse to be irresolute than to be wrong….”If you don’t know how to pronounce a word, say it loud! If you don’t know how to pronounce a word, say it loud!…Why run and hide?”
In the introduction of The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah, the author notes ,” I wished not to write for a definite purpose, be it even the defence of the faith- but rather to let that purpose grow out of the book…”
At the beginning of any endeavor, one has many questions, there are many things one doesn’t know how to do yet or what the conception will be.
In The Inner Game of Music, the writer, Barry Green talks about the moment to Letting Go when the musician engages the audience by walking the razor’s edge and risking complete failure, in order to achieve total triumph.
I don’t have any idea what I am doing except that I chose WordPress because code is poetry, and I know two things about poetry. It makes me cry and I write it for no reason. So, mislay your reason and reasonableness for a moment, and think with your heart and feel with your head. Until then…
