Beginnings

Famous people like to write about beginnings. Or maybe people's need to hear about beginnings make the quotes famous. Whatever.

The beginning is the most important part of the work. - Plato

In every phenomenon the beginning remains always the most notable moment. - Thomas Carlyle

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. - Lao Tzu

To begin, begin. - William Wordsworth

While we are making up our minds as to when we shall begin. the opportunity is lost. - Quintilian

'Begin at the beginning', the King said, very gravely, 'and go on till you come to the end: then stop.' - Lewis Carroll

And so on and so forth. It's an endless list really.

I'm good at beginning things. Just look at my numerous quirky projects. The real problem lies in following through, in finishing.

So anyways, this first entry begins yet another semi-artsy project that probably won't go anywhere.

Happy readings good sirs & ma'ams!
