Anne Lamott: from Gypsies

"I realized that I want what the crones have: time for all those long deep breaths, time to watch more closely, time to learn to enjoy what I've always been afraid of--the sag and the invisibility, the ease of understanding that life is not about doing. The crones understand this, and it gives them all kinds of time--time to get much less done, time for all those holy moments."

Anne Lamott from "Gysies" part of "Travelling Mercies".

You, my friend, and Anne Lamott are both so good for my soul. Thanks for this - in the middle of such a long day into evening. Want to spend some time simply breathing, with maybe a slow conversation thrown in, when all of this Orientation stuff is over?? Oh how I long to be sitting on the porch with a glass of your wine. :)

miss you - always grateful for your words.
