Tripio The Novel

How I found my mind, brewed some coffee, and learned to write novels.

Don’t translate, answer.” Those were the instruction from my Russian professor in college. He wanted his students to answer his questions posed in Russian as responses, not having taken the extra step to translate from Russian to English to Russian to answer. I have something similar in mind with the thoughts I’m listing below. They are collected from my Sketchbooks of the Mind (journals) from the recent past. When you read them, just think them over. No need to like, comment or even agree or disagree. I’m not after clicks, as is so often the intent of “list” posts. In other words, “Don’t click, think”. Have fun…

Ten thoughts to think over or even over think

One cannot breathe yesterday's air
The universal truths are universal because the the truth in them is different for everyone
My mind is my dedicated work space
If you don't posses it, you can not address it
If you can't let it go, at least let it flow
America is the land of cardboard boxes
The journey is not difficult once you decided to take it
Live cheaply to sleep deeply
It's not the book, the painting, the creation that matters, but what the creation creates that is most important
My life is hard enough for me to appreciate just how easy it is

Ten thoughts to think over is over

  1. Wow you have sketchbooks of the mind? I journal every day, but I’ve never thought to think of my journals as a place to jot down memories. Perhaps I’ll need to reframe my practice. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks! I like how you refereed to your journalism as a practice! I feel the same way about my journals…like a yoga practice, it can tell you a bit of something new about yourself every day.

    1. Thanks so much for the response! I had enough positive reaction that I have another ten to post in mid-January. Kept the humor also…
