Start a new chapter

Chalkboard cards and signs seem to be all the rage these days. And although I tend to avoid most trends, I’ll admit I rather fancy this fad.

This morning I was brainstorming titles for a script I’m editing, when I stumbled upon this quote:


It’s a bit simplistic, but it really hit home. I decided to take a break and whip up a version of my own.

You can't start BLOG

Got a favorite quote you’d like to play with? Here’s everything you’ll need to get started.


Happy Thursday β€” and here’s to starting new chapters.


  1. We see so many of these bite-sized bits of philosophy floating around the web that it’s easy to take the good ones for granted. And this one IS a good one. Not only applicable to life in general, but it also reminds me of a flaw I have when learning new music on the piano: there’s a tendency to sit and replay only what you’ve learned so far instead of using that time to move forward and progress as a player. I think there’s a similar metaphor for life in there somewhere…

    Bravo for keeping your blog alive by the way. It’s something I haven’t managed to do lately. πŸ™‚

    • I love your learning-a-new-piano-piece example, Corey! I’m relieved to hear you do that, too. It’s probably very natural, when you think about it β€” the tendency to stick with something that’s comfortable and that makes us feel successful. Maybe that’s why I’ve never succeeded in actually moving to Paris (you’re still the gutsiest person I know, in that department!). As for blogging … meh. If you don’t feel it, why do it? I do miss your wonderful voice, though. I truly hope you are continuing to write a bit, at least for your own enjoyment. Anyway, thanks for the kind comment. Great to hear from you!

      • Ah thanks for sharing this H. I have a favourite quote for New Year’s I want to print. You know it, ” Time to Drink Champagne and Dance on the Table.” And I’m replying to this comment, as I miss A French Frye in Paris too.
        Hugs from Denmark. πŸ™‚
