The weather is closing in and it's time to get a move on

About 1:30 today I finally got things arranged on the home front to the point where I could take off. I didn't get far today.

First on the agenda was a stop at All Season's RV Center in Pittsfield MA to get my propane tank topped up and from there I headed west through Albany NY and then down I-88 as far as Oneonta NY where I holed up in the Walmart parking lot for the night.

Give it, Give it All, Give it Now

One of the few things I know about writing is this: spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, right away, every time. Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book, or for another book; give it, give it all, give it now. The impulse to save something good for a better place later is the signal to spend it now. Something more will arise for later, something better. These things fill from behind, from beneath, like well water. Similarly, the impulse to keep to yourself what you have learned is not only shameful, it is destructive. Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes.
