Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

To Sing Among the People

Luck is where opportunity meets preparation. 
Denzel Washington

I met a young man once who wanted to be a recording artist
But when he was suddenly given  the chance
to showcase his voice and perhaps get a recording contract
He froze
Opportunity knocked
on a day when he was not mentally prepared

He would advise me later to:
"sing among the people, so that you are always prepared"

 on that day when opportunity came to call
He had lost his focus
He was somewhere else mentally
His mind had wandered

When asked about what it took to be a great actor, 
Spencer Tracy said:
Know your lines and don't bump into the furniture.

It is the furniture bumping part that gets us
We take our eyes off the moment and the goal and the positive
and we start bumping in to the clutter in our mind
You know your lines....
so don't bump in to all that mental furniture
and you and opportunity will get along just fine
and that's poetiquejustis
