Words for the Road VII100 short reflections and punsaf George Manus
This WORDS FOR THE ROAD VII, the seventh in a row, is dedicated to "Opinions" and given the same subtitle as the others: 100 short reflections and puns.
All my words for the road, which now have reached 800, are expressions of my spontaneous opinions and thoughts when they were put on paper.
Some of them the reader will find obvious while others could have been shaped differently or not be included at all. But, in between there may be some one will take notice off and some that give an afterthought.
If so, my purpose for them is achieved.
The reflection "The sub-goal", written in 1995, which is copied from the book REFLECTIONS I is about golf but is, in my opinion, just as valid when it comes to writing. The expression: "It is not the goal that counts but the process" also applies here. It is reproduced from page 14.
As in the previous WORDS FOR THE ROAD, the table of contents is presented in alphabetical order in both English and Norwegian. In the book the English comes first, with the corresponding Norwegian next to it.
If you should get the feeling that you´ve heard some of them before, I can assure you it has never been my intention to plagiarize.
