A Little About A Lot


A Little About A Lot
By Nabih Saliba

To know a lot about a little
Or a little about a lot
Is a thing we should consider
But in practice often not

If a lot about a little
Then an expert you will be
Of the few things you have studied
Or have done repeatedly

Should you choose a lighter focus
For the things that you can learn
Then your interests will be wider
With all details no concern

If an expert on a subject
Or someone who knows a lot
Be it narrow or unfocused
Make the most of what you’ve got

In the end it only matters
If you help your fellow man
Use what knowledge you’ve been given
To help us be the best we can

To know a lot about a little
Or a little about a lot
Is not the thing that matters

But in practice means a lot.

It wasn't until many years later when standing in line at the DMV that I bumped into her again. Having her with me in that line reminded me how much I enjoyed her company. We saw each other quite regularly after that until I met my wife a few years later. During the first year of my marriage, I couldn't maintain the affair but would often wonder if I'd ever see her again. It wasn’t until the second year with my wife that I started to rekindle the affair and found that things would go better at home after each encounter. When my son was born, of course, there were a few months when I didn’t make the effort to keep up the affair and lost touch with her entirely. These were dark days of stress and unhappiness. Eventually, I started sneaking her into the house and became less frantic. Looking back, it's a wonder I

Sound Advice: The Future

I've enjoyed becoming a member of  The Writer's Community on Google+. There, I've found a wonderful group of people in various stages of writing careers. One of them ( Gabriela Gotay ) shared a great post about the playlist she used for inspiration when writing her book, " The Forever Maybe ." This got me thinking about the influence of sound and music on one's writing and I thought I'd begin a series of posts titled, " Sound Advice " that essentially aims to make musical recommendations around a subject or genre of writing. The posts will provide links to the music on Amazon and brief commentary on what imagery or concepts the music conjures in my mind. Hopefully there's something that sparks the imagination along the way. Today's Sound Advice  is going to tackle "The Future." Whether this is a utopian, dystopian, near, far, alternate or projected future may influence certain aspects of the following list but all tracks e
