Quote For The Weekend (Late Edition As Was Holiday, No? Blrrrrgh)

E.W. looking very disciplined indeed.

A work of art is not a matter of thinking beautiful thoughts or experiencing tender emotions (though those are its raw materials) but of intelligence, skill, taste, proportion, knowledge, discipline and industry; especially discipline.

—Evelyn Waugh

Farewell post-turkey-day sandwiches of turkey, mashies, yams, cranberry sauce, creamed onions, coleslaw and smoky bacon biscuit dressing all squished together between slices of tasty whole wheat bread! I ate 2 of you. Hello again yoga, smoothies, hard boiled eggs and evening writing schedule. Yes! Discipline! (Oooo—leftover chardonnay in fridge!)
