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
Here's a tongue-twister, a delight to my English-loving and nerdy mind (and tongue).
And this is what I watch when I need a good laugh: blooper reels from Once Upon a Time.
And for nastalgia's sake, here's some Hogan's Heroes for you. Serious feels here, not to mention guffaws.
Rain and chilly weather here. Really and truly October. Have a cup of tea and enjoy the weather my friends!
