If I wanted to plagiarize Anne Lamott, I could call today one of those days when I'm feeling "screwed up, broken, clingy and scared". I even have a list of possible blog topics for those days or the other ones when ‘nothing’s happening’.
And so I scanned down my list of possible topics, fervently hoping to find a subject that would grab me.
Lo and behold, several things did jump out. But here’s the rub: my system of checking off the ones I’ve already used is not exactly a ‘system’. Though I'm generally pretty well-organized, in writing this blog, I'm often scrambling at the end of the day and forgetting about niceties like leaving a √ alongside the topics I've used. So my 'system' comes down to what I can remember I’ve used, what I have the patience to comb through the old blogs to find and the few on that list which have that authoritative check mark.
Today I’m sharing a link to a wonderful Anne Lamott piece which is utterly soul-satisfying and even if you read it when she wrote it last year, maybe your recall is as bad as mine and you'll rediscover it all over with the same delight I did : Everyone is screwed up, broken, clingy and scared. Enjoy!
