Where Do Sentences Come From? Where Do Sentences Come From? By VERLYN KLINKENBORG

Nice thoughts - The Old Goat is 81, got a stroke about 5 years earlier, started learning about "my mind", that had to "start up" again, learned to "read", learned to "verbally" speak (not as good as I want to), BUT over these last 5 years, "my mind" has become "clearer" than ever, even during my "earlier years", when I used to think I was already on the "fast track"!

Somehow, the "little switches" in my mind seemed to be "reset", in a better order, so I good see into the "future", just over the next hill - and it is GOOD, for ME, to be "balanced" as I look to each day with "interest", and sometimes find myself finding a little"part" in this "play" that are Earth Planet spins around or Sun!

Where Do Sentences Come From? How to find good writing in that dark, cavernous place called the mind.

    PAPAFOOTE's Interests:

    About Me: "The Old Goat" Since my Joanna has let go of her life, Charlie (my little companion dog) and I (Papa Foote, "The Traveling Man") were still walking down the "road of live" - smelling the thoughts of the world. But now, since my stroke has started to creep into my old body, my mind is still with the "Eagles Flying Higher" but mostly, I just want to try to squeeze my thinking and writing into just a few words that count towards a better world - like no more anger and selfish thinking that comes from warring between human clans instead of helping each other in our World! My choices are my own - from my inner-self! "Thoughts" Plant Kiindness and Harvest Love Beware of Charlatans* *False expert: Somebody who falsely claims a special skill or expertise - Early 17th century: "to babble, patter," an imitation of the sound of empty talk! Keep Your Mind Open and Balanced Try To Be True To Your Inner-Self "Facts" Some "Facts" are actually truths that we are able to uncover and understand! Some "Facts" are only truths until something changes as we become able to understand more! Some "Facts" will never become truths because we will never be able to understand! "So" That is why the human mind has trouble with "factual conclusions"! "I'm Slowing Down - But Still Thinking" An Old Goat - Still Trying - As The World Cycles Forward (Never Back) - Leaning Forward Progressively - But Still In The Balance - Looking For The Better Path to The Future!
