Twosday Triumphs

The fine writers at Women of Mystery have something going on called Two Sentence Tuesday.
I've played once or twice, but put my sentences up over there. Today, for a refreshing change of pace, I thought I'd foul my own nest instead.
Offerings are to include two sentences that I've read over the past week and two I've written.
What I've read:

"Some people, for example, think spirit sounds spooky; they may find consciousness more appealing.
Soul sounds ominous to some; extended self-awareness, though, can convey the same meaning."
-from Edgar Cayce Answers Life's 10 Most Important Questions, by John G. Fuller, Warner Books, 1989.

And my offerings for the past week:

“Arturs, are you sure you should use the word living?”
"It makes my point. And I can be killed therefore I must be alive. Anyway, I’m not going to argue the finer points of my existence. Especially given that you can’t die at all.”

It's a bit more than two, but they go together and I didn't want to break things up.

Thanks for reading.

Great sentences, dfLeah! I definitely want to read more of what you have written.
And I love Edgar Cayce. Must read more of his works, too.

Thanks, df Bag Lady. Be careful what you ask for, though, as you may be drafted as a beta reader someday.

Great offerings, Leah! I'm not a great two-word writer. I'd have a hard time composing what you've thought of!

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Redbush.

Leah, I would like to read more. That's enough to whet my appetite and curiosity.

More people need to read Edgar Cayce: a good man with connections of the spirit.

Leah J. Utas said...

Barbara, I agree with you about Cayce.

And thanks for your kind words about my words.

df Leah,

I haven't read E.C. in years and years but I remember his work as being intriguing and containing sound advice. I'll have to take a second look.

I love your sentences especially:

"I’m not going to argue the finer points of my existence."

Strong personality there!

Terrie
