  1. I’m cutting and pasting this quote onto my Word program, then I’m printing it out and hanging it up on my wall!! Awesome!

    As a friend of mine would say, “Press on with your writing!”


    • Indeed!

      It’s tied in with our affirmations. Have you read my “Creating Your Future, Creating Our Future” post? Oh, and “Some Notes on Pronoia and Rob Brezsny.”

      I love that! “Press on with your writing!”

      Now you made me laugh!

      All the best, Andy
