I Choose The Star

My mantra for this week is from "Take Something Like A Star" by Robert Frost:

"So when at times the mob is swayed
To carry praise or blame too far,
We may take something like a star
To stay our minds on and be staid."

Yeah. I'm getting some perspective on the star right now.

So who or what is swaying too far, Julia? You're being poetically elusive.

Why, thank you, Chester. I sort of like that description. :)

In general I am always on the star; however, recently I've been reading lots of theoretical debate in my graduate class, and after a while it seems rather ridiculous, the notion of joining one camp or another, especially because each new writer says the previous one was wrong.
