"SWELL"
is the prompt this week at I.F

"Some days you must learn a great deal. But you should also have days when you allow what is already in you to swell up and touch everything. If you never let that happen, then you just accumulate facts, and they begin to rattle around inside of you." ~ E.L. Konigsburg

Oh no, not another owl!



Wishing you all a 'swell' weekend 
(yes - even I'm cringing at that one!)

What wisdom - i love collecting facts and knowledge and sometimes forget to just be with what i do know instead of always chasing more - your owl is stunning - why is it that owls keep popping up i wonder?

naomi orana said...

You're right in both cases Clare, there seems to be owls EVERYWHERE and little factoids of knowledge :-) I wonder if ther's a connection ?
