I have a new renter this week from The Blue Panther Experience and Other Things. I'm excited because he's a fellow writer and a Nano winner. In case you don't know, Nano or NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, a challenge to write an entire novel in 30 days. A totally doable task if you are dedicated enough. It's a step I haven't taken yet but I admire those who have.
His blog is basically personal with a special treat on Sundays called Blog Your Blessings. You blog about the good things that your thankful for. It's an interesting concept. Maybe one I'll take up. I know I have a lot to be thankful for. We all do compared to some people out there that don't have what we have.
His latest entry is about a very familiar topic here: Superstitions. I'm not a very superstitious person. I don't really see any point in them. However, the one he strongly believes in and claims that really works for him is: "If you see a vessel filled up to the brim with water as you are leaving the house, you will most likely achieve success and will have a great day. If on the other hand you see an empty vessel you will fail and will have a lousy day."
It makes you wonder if a black cat crosses your path really is bad luck or merely knowing the action is a superstition sabotages your day some how therefore giving it power in your mind. Basically, you believe it'll happen so it will. Who knows.
