I always remember the time I wrote the phrase “mind’s eye”. I was so happy at something I believed was completely original. It wasn’t until I began to read more and more that I realized I had not made up a phrase. It was more likely that I had read it quite often without realizing it and when I used it I thought it was original.
It maybe true that everything has been done or said before but I firmly believe that every person is unique and each person has their own unique slant to everything. But now when I think of something and believe it is the first time it’s ever been thought I just remind myself that it’s probably just the first time I thought of it.
