Validate me, Baby,
I’m so proud of myself
Lookit the praise of many!
You’re ridiculous,
Show me the money.

Affrim me, Honey,
Lookit the love;
It’s just pourin’ in.
Watchagotta show forit?
It ain’t ink, it’s RGB on a screen

I’m deflated,
Put in my place;
Poseuer, playing Poet.

“That isn’t writing at all, it’s typing.” Truman Capote

Practice rather than preach. Make of your life an affirmation, defined by your ideals, not the negation of others. Dare to the level of your capability then go beyond to a higher level.
Alexander Haig

  2. Heya Cin. Yup, too true…

    My friend Douglas Pearce immunized me there. He said, “Opinions are like bottoms – everyone has one.”

  3. Only one opinion really counts – one’s own! Provided one is brutally honest with oneself.

    You’ll never guess who I chose for that Page 91/40 thing. Trollope! I must be crazy. Still tinkering with it.

  4. The difficulty with receiving praise…is that it is followed with so what’s next? Did enjoy reading this over morning coffee and thinking about bruised egos.

  5. From Impressionism & Abstract Expressionism:

    “Once we accept that our reputations vary from person to person, and even day-to-day (depending upon the topic under discussion), we stop getting caught up in the opinions of others ~ which tend to be based more on who they are, than on who we are.

    Instead [of looking for validation from others], we strive to do our best while remaining focused on the reputation that matters most:

    The one we have with the ”man in the mirror.”

    Pick yourself up . . . dust yourself off . . . and start all over again!

    Good luck ~ hope your sun returns soon! : )
