“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” Oscar Wilde
Oscar is among my favorite writers. There’s something about his incredible range that inspires me: He wrote witty plays, glorious fairytales, a wildly original novel, and moving poetry. His wonderful words shared here, surely written before his days darkened, are worth remembering.
Their message: as writers and creatives, we always have access to everything we need to be happy and fruitfully productive.
How simple life can be when we remember that it can be simple!
We have the freedom to let our writing take us wherever it wants us to go. When we follow our hearts and our intuition, we open ourselves to unexpected ideas and trains of thought. We are free to explore, to create.
We have books to inspire and guide us. We have other writers we admire whose books can give us a glimpse of other worlds and other lives. When we delve closely into their work, we can begin to see how they’ve constructed their stories and kept us on the page.
We have flowers and all of nature to bring beauty into our lives. With all the time we put into our work, we also have time to refresh ourselves, to step outside and enjoy trees, and flowers, snowfalls and summer days. What a glorious gift!
We have the moon to remind us of the mysteries of life. When we gaze at its cool, distant loveliness, it reminds us that we are part of something larger than ourselves. That we are lucky to be alive.
“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” Let’s remember these words as we all write on!
