Defer no more

Think of all the years passed by in which you said to yourself “I’ll do it tomorrow,” and how the gods have again and again granted you periods of grace of which you have not availed yourself. It is time to realize that you are a member of the Universe, that you are born of Nature itself, and to know that a limit has been set to your time. Use every moment wisely, to perceive your inner refulgence, or ‘twill be gone and nevermore within your reach.
- Marcus Aurelius
For some time now, i've been putting off starting this blog. After all, i have the minimal skills necessary to do it, like to write, and think i have something to say. I also happen to be editing an anthology of quotations and just finished proofing the section on Deferment/Delay. The quotations speak to me in no uncertain terms, and as i removed extra spaces, corrected spelling and punctuation, and adjusted formatting, i was prompted to shift gears, and begin.
