In lieu of trying to belong to any number of societies: Chesterton, Sherlock Holmes, the Inklings, and so on: I propose and establish one of my own. Don your intelligence cap at the door; dust off your logic and imagination; did you bring your inspiration and encouragement? We are shapers, my friends; lit lamps; light-bringers. Bring quotes*; poetry should be uplifting and thoughtful, or witty and clever, (or both). Humor is encouraged; laughter is invited back. Pull up a chair. Anyone for tea?

* C.S. LEWIS, J.R.R. TOLKIEN, SHERLOCK HOLMES, G.K. CHESTERTON, N.D. WILSON, AND P.G. WODEHOUSE, ARE ENCOURAGED

Serious Shawn moment



"Take lots of pictures. Not of sights. Don't take pictures of buildings. Take pictures of moments, 'cause that's what matters. Capture 'em here [points to his head], and hold on to 'em here [points to his heart]... At least that's what I would do. I don't know, you might take blurry photos of your espresso at some random café..." -Shawn Spencer, Psych
