Discovering Elbert Hubbard

This afternoon, while I was feeling trapped in waiting for others to do things for themselves–instead of I for them, I began to move through my browser bookmarks. My heart and feeling wasn’t really into doing so. I became a bit more interested after finding that some blogs that had gone idle, blogs that I liked very much, had again become active! The pleased momentum of stimulating input led me to change the theme for one of my food blogs, to provide an index, and to categorize it.

I like feeling productive. Even more, I like being productive and feeling creative and engaged all at the same time. I decided to continue by clearing out my media bookmarks. I ran across a PBS sourced link for Elbert Hubbard. I frowned a bit and thought to myself, “Who is that and why did you bookmark it?” I shrugged and I clicked and I thought how I probably did not feel like sitting still to watch a documentary. I told myself that I was going to feel stagnant and bored if I continued to surf along the surfaces of things without swimming in them. I began to watch. I remembered the previous inducement to search for Roycroft and for the town.

I watched the entire documentary, that is cut into sections that include an auto-play feature. One can start and stop at will. I saw many things to which I had been exposed growing up but never knew the names, method, school of thought etc. Perhaps you too, will enjoy it. Below, is the link.

About Elisa

I love reading, writing, poetry, photography and cooking and and and...!!! "It gives me strength, almost unbelievable strength, to know that you are there. I covet your eyes, your ears, the collapsible space between us. How blessed are we to have each other? I am alive and you are alive and so we must fill the air with our words." - Dave Eggers

    I did not watch much of this, simply because I don’t want to dilute my attention with more facts. But was so gladdened that this gladdened YOU! Happy swimming into things…

      It took me quite a while to think of viewing anything from the media file due to the feeling of dilution or a wish not to feel it. And thank you, I did feel happy and content and full of nourishment!
