When the muse has flown away........

This doesn't happen often...   But I seem to have run out of things to say, in blogging.  Or at least, of things to say, which sound as if they are to be said, in blogging.  ::::  I can always think of something which "bugs me."  But that would only add to the things, which may "bug you."  And who needs that?
Or I can think of things which are not a good memory, at this time of year.   But again, who needs to read that, in a blog?  Everyone has not-good memories.   Few want to be reminded of their own.
I do "collect" quotes.   So perhaps they will make an interim posting topic...
"The true alchemists do not turn lead
into gold; they change the world into words."
~William H. Gass
The above quote, would be dear to the heart of any reader.  As well as to any writer. 
Everything that irritates us about others 
can lead us to an understanding 
of ourselves.”  ~Jung
This quote doesn't bring a happy smile to the face.  But it is worth thinking about.  I happen to like Jung, so the truth of the statement, is easier for me to swallow, than if I did not.  ::::   It's not a comforting thought, though.   Not necessarily easily accepted.   But.....   Certainly interesting.  Can I apply it, to my own views?

I have read that the "faults" we find in others, is simply a mirror of what we don't like about our own personalities...having said that, I don't think it always applies! I am annoyed by our adrenaline junkie snowmobiling loud neighbours...but I don't have an ounce of that in me, so this is a good example where it doesn't apply! I have some examples where it definitely applies, but would rather keep those to myself and work on them! ;)

The quote from Jung reminds me of what I once read and what Rain above has expressed: The thing we dislike in others is most often the characteristic in ourselves we despise the most. Hmmmmm . . . food for thought?

Nothing wise or insightful from me, sorry. Chin up, Luna. The snow and the cold will soon go, the sap will start to rise in the trees, and we will all be given fresh hope and energy as Spring comes in. When does that exhibition of beautiful paintings open?

Lots of things bugging me at the moment so I'm just keeping my head down and getting lost in a good book. Hope inspiration returns soon:)

Hello; it's me. That's okay to have "run out." Sometimes you need a little break to recharge and to get inspired. Do you carry a little notebook around when you're out and about? Seeing something may inspire a post for you.
