I wonder how much of what we write is truly original?
I read a poem by bi_janus today, just now in fact, and I allowed my mind to go blank. This is not a difficult feat for me, unless I think with my feet.
Anyway back to bi_janus' poem, which you can read here, Original Face Instruction Manual for Worrywarts
I confess the title seemed to not do the poem justice, but it works if you think about your original face. The poem gave me pause for thought, and I was put into the frame of mind that usually only meditation brings; that quiet moment, seemingly endless, yet always too short.
My thoughts turned Zenish and then it happened; I started to type, and this is what I wrote,
"The silence between the notes is still music."
I looked at it. Could I have possibly come up with that?
Is it original? Surely someone must have said that before me.
I must be old and forgetful, and I thought, of course someone would have said that before me.
But it doesn't matter does it? I like it and added it to my signature.
If someone has seen it before do, please, let me know. I'm curious.
