Keep Swimming

I apologize in advance to Wordswimmer readers for not posting on Sunday (October 8th) due to a family emergency.

Perhaps these three quotes--which I've kept on my desk over the past few days, always within sight, as encouragement to stay in the water--may serve as inspiration for your own writing:

"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water."
--Loren Eisley, American naturalist, essayist, and anthropologist

"It is important to remember that we all have magic inside us."
-- J.K. Rowling, author of Harry Potter

"When you come to the edge of all the light you have and must take a step into the darkness of the unknown, believe that one of two things will happen: either there will be something solid for you to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly."
-- Patrick Overton, poet and playwright

With any luck, I'll have another post up by early next week.

In the meantime, keep swimming, and thanks for taking a moment to stop by.
