STARTING UP

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate STARTING THINGS. THE Star Wagon has had 2 STARTER motors this year. Both conked out. It took the hammer and stick to get started and a two person combination. Today Lizzy did SUNSHINE AUTO ELECTRICS down in Industry Drive Tweed Heads South and they say the Starter Motor in there now will keep right on STARTING.

Out on the Front Porch He is putting the STICKY GRASS PUDDING artwork into the CD jackets. This START comes at the long end of an album recording. Over 12 months in fact. Now the first 20 cds are here in a box Lizzy picked up from Tumbulgum Birdwing Cafe – and PASPALUM is ready to LAUNCH IT. OMigod says She. Omigod. This could be the START of something strange.

Most of the critical things in life, which become
the starting points for human destiny, are little things.

– R. Smith

A year from now you may wish you had started today.
– Karen Lamb

The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold
Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall.
Johnny Mercer
Much-recorded song Autumn Leaves. Originally a French song Les Feuilles Mortes with lyrics by poet Jacques Prevért.

Arriving at one point is the starting point to another.
John Dewey


Think Big Start Small

I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one. Mark Twain
