January, you anvil!
I am hobbling my way through this week. Thank goodness for my mama. Maybe if you are having a particularly difficult week, you can give yourself a break and maybe it will look like this:
Why don’t we all listen to this song, while perusing this fantastic recent collection by Maison Scotch. Maybe that’ll get you relaxed enough to wander down to the kitchen and make two, just two, chocolate chip cookies to munch on while reading this great article on George Saunders. Maybe if you have the time, and the tub, you will take a bath while reading one of his short stories (check out this one), or if you are in a different kind of contemplative mood, you will read this article about faith, instead. And if you have days when you feel like you would just like to get the hells off the internet, maybe a diary like this will replace the need to expound on twitter, and will also be a really fun thing to look back on.
And if it helps, when you are particularly tired, maybe you can fantasize about being in bed, and be thankful you get to have one, especially when its so cold outside. That's what I'm doing right now - fantasizing about my bed, being thankful for it, and finishing off a box of special k popcorn chips.
