to keep himself from crossing the road which, he is keenly aware, will end in disaster
Okay SO I recently found out like last week that the chicken crossing the road to get to the other side is NOT the other side of said road but the other side LIKE HEAVEN
This is a very sweet, lovely newsletter. Awwwww
As a worrier and a sufferer, this was helpful.
"Why do you insist on suffering?" asked my qualifier (as they say in some 12 step groups).
"I'm too worried about what you think of my life?"
(But that makes it sound like he's just a person giving advice and not an echo of a voice calcified into my inner critic.)
"It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open" I wish that was me. That was Martha Graham talking.
....Oh, and on the tinkering with note-taking side, I had some luck with 'anecdote'. (not an employee-they just have room on their calendars for random, notes, priorities, etc.)
Thanks for sharing that Merriam-Webster has a comments section for every word. There goes the rest of my life!
WOOT on the paid subscribers - you are rocking!!!
love all of this! thank you for writing it so people can read it (as i myself AM "people." or i'm part people. or people are part me.)
also, re: chickens, have you seen/heard bo burnham's song "the chicken"? it's one of the most beautiful songs i've ever seen/heard. have you watched all of "inside" and the "inside outtakes"? do you love bo burnham like i do and if not why not (no need to answer).
love you! love this!
