My BIG GOAL For Today

I'm going to follow my advice today on self-esteem, confidence, and pride, and set a BIG GOAL.

I've got one: I'm going to become an expert on the poetry of William Blake.

UPDATE: Hmm, William Blake. This seems complicated. Book of Thel, Song of Los, Book of Ahania, The Four Zoas, Daughters of Albion. ... What the??

Everyone says William Blake is so great. Maybe I'm going to need to rethink this. I can't make heads or tails of it.

The Tillage of Urizen, the Wail of Enion ... this IS English, right? Good grief, and my BIG GOAL for the day was to be an expert in Blake.

This might take more time and energy than I have. I could look at these words all day, no matter how patient I am, and still not get it.
