Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/17/16

I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees.  I am going to close my eyes and listen.”   —   Anne Lamott

(“Hectic trees”?  I mean I get it – birds chirping and squirrels scurrying, etc – but I always associate negative connotations to the word “hectic”.  I might have used the word lively, or something.  But, she’s the “pro”, and I just write a blog.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    It seemed a little incongruous to me too, UR. It makes a little more sense, though, when you add the sentence that immediately precedes the quote (according to Brainyquote.com): “I am going to try to pay attention to the spring.” Never mind that we’re deep in summer, but I guess springtime is “hectic” for trees, with leaves sprouting, flowers budding, etc. Still, the author is more likely to *hear* the birds and squirrels.

    You know, it seems we very often only get a certain segment of a quote. And, even though some do stand alone very well, sometimes we kind of lose the context. Thanks for looking it up, hal!
