Learning by research

“It is said by few, we read far too fast, we miss what has past”

I start my next examination for tonight.

I picked up a new book from the library, for research for  a book I am working on called THE POET  the book takes place in the 1940s.

I picked up the book Hitler’s Savage Canary By:  David Lampe.

Here is what happened I started analyzing the way I read I started to understand a few, things.

We are bridging the way we read books I started reading the foreward and here (I quote from the foreward.

[The story of the occupation of denmark from 1940 to 1945 is a tangle one.]

Now lets examine what tangled means. The word it is written, in the American dictionary (To catch in a share; trap, to make a snarl)I To be tangled brings confusion! It goes on to say. [A story of many contradictions.] Now here I stop again, go to the word contradiction here it says in the dictionary To assert the opposite of a statement. To deny the statement (of a person) Now I am going to read from the book from the begining. and show you what we are missing.

 

The story of the German occupation of Denmark is a tangled one. (Remember tangled brings confusion) which means we need to be careful when writing stories and telling them a story of many contradictions) Now I am not very far in the book yet, so I do not know exactly how or who is contradicting this, but it does mean when we say somthing we should live it.

(The Good things of course not Evil)  Weather it be for our selfs or others either way I have thought about this. You see how much we can learn when we really observe a topic word, by word. This is my meaning when I say “we read too swiftly” We recognize the word and use it but, we keep going surpassing  in-between the lines, in this I am saying we are   seeing the word but do not go to the core meaning.

same way with the word of god It says in John-1:1 In the begining was the word, and the word was with god, and the word was God. John:1-14 And the word was made flesh. and dwelt among us.

The communication Of Ideas.

“Run from the inner darkness that creepeth underneath your skin”

It is thursday, the first of August, and here I am conveying what is on my mind.

The theme I would like to reveal this sunny day, is the written form of language.

1. The book I want to bring to attention is the book entitled (The Communication Of Ideas.) A book I recommend (if you can find it)

I have been developing my writing style for a number of year now, writing and re-writing over, and over again. Never reaching the point I am pleased with.

My observation on writing, so often has changed because of the wide range of books I have encountered, but I would like to share a little with you. If you are patient enough to read on and see. the word “nausea” comes to mind, when I sit and begin typing away at the keyboard fighting to reach the point in which I call

“the beauty point.” The beauty point is the place where I can read my work and be happy with it. (Which is very rarely) I am mostly at (the builders staff) the place where mere workmanship is needed. Time-and time again. The book that helped me as I stated above is. “The communication Of Ideas”

A book the far surpasses every other book on writing (only judging by the books I have read on it) The book is a collection of monthly letters written to

The Royal Bank Of Canada.The book could only be attained, by request in the front office located at The Royal Bank Of Canada.

And now I would like to show you an excerpt, to give as a glimpse of its contents.

 

Here the writer is trying to convey to the reader the alarming truth that we must read as much as we should write. This may be nothing new, to some readers (or many) I enjoyed reading this none the less.

 

NOTHING COMES FROM NOTHING

There is no such thing as creation of an article out of nothing. The writer does not inhabit a desolate world, nor does he  scribble within the confines of his own brain. All life contributes to his work. He draws upon his experience for descriptive power and for guidance in laying a new thought alongside a stored thought and producing a novel idea.

Wide reading provides the writer with a treasury of facts, thoughts analogies and illustrations. He must replenish his mind continually, if his articles are to have sparkle, authenticity and newness. It is impossible to write anything pridefully if our heads are empty with material upon which our ideas may work.

What a condemnation it was when Dr. Samuel Johnson said of man that he had written more than he read! Fortunately, there is no excuses these days for neglect in reading. Libraries are available almost everywhere, in towns, in caravans, even by mail. Many of the world’s great books are published in low-priced paper-covered form. Digests and general magazines carry out authoritative articles about persons and events.

That is for background reading. When it comes from finding facts about for a specific article, the writer must change from wide reading to digging in a confined space. He will stake out an area and stay within it. No matter what matter a writer chooses upon which to write, something has been written about it. Diligent enquiry at the library, in book stores, of professional people in universities, of the information departments in industrial associations, of adult education and extension school people, will uncover rich loads of knowledge.

When reading that it gave me an idea, what do I need to do to renew my mind? what do I need to do to enrich my writing? what kind of practices can I try to see my writing improve? What can you do in these areas?

 

Denying Truth (what it is all about)

A denying truth such is life right, we give out truth yet, we argue which is true. Hundreds of people giving out news, talk, and music. All these voices some lies some truths we look upon them trying to make sense of this world all the while configuring our own.

Now I want to dig a little deeper (the point is coming) the word truth means (according to the english dictionary) true or actual state of a matter: the truth about ones health. conformity with fact or  reality; verity: the truth of a statement. state or character of being true. And if we dig just a bit deeper and ask one simple yet, profound question where does truth come from? it says in John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the father, but by me.

And so I am not the one that Denys this truth, but the ones out there. And you show yourself’s clear as day. Just as I reveal myself in the same way. Through speech, action and observation. This blog will speak about this truth time-to time, but I am a observer of many things, therefore, post a variety of subjects please enjoy this blog as I get this journey prepared. Sincerly, C.D. Colt
