This is my Notebook:
The in-between. My work is about moments that reveal a fragmented narrative.
Summer is fading minute by minute now each evening. When I notice its dwindling twilight I’m surprised at the earlier time each day. It was still bright at this hour just a few weeks ago!
Six more days left of the season.
This morning waking up I felt emptied out. Strangely and with relief.
Been reading more by Annie Dillard. It’s been very helpful. Very:
“There is no shortage of good days. It is good lives that are hard to come by. A life of good days lived in the senses is not enough. The life of sensation is the life of greed; it requires more and more. The life of the spirit requires less and less; time is ample and its passage sweet.” (The Writing Life, published by Harper Perennial)
Here’s to less.
Less needing. Making it matter. Making do. Keeping a schedule.
