Thought for the day: Friday
Anita Sharpe on Life

'I remind myself of this when I cannot get any work done: to live as if I am dying, because the truth is we're all terminal on this bus. To live as if we are dying gives us a chance to experience some real presence. Time is so full for people who are dying in a conscious way, full in the way that life is for children. So instead of staring miserably at the computer screen trying to will my way into having a breakthrough, I say to myself, 'Okay, hmmm, let's see. Dying tomorrow. What should I do today?' Then I can decide to read Wallace Stevens for the rest of the morning or go to the beach or just really participate in ordinary life. Any of these will begin the process of filling me back up. . .' -- Writer Anne Lamott (from Bird by Bird)

Thank you for that one Anita, I myself - most of the time, have to pull away from staring at the computer screen... I read the article on Ms. Cramer's in WorthWhile's Premier Issue and realized that I used to be like her - till six months back - till I bought my laptop. The thought you put up today is another milestone taking me back to being *me*. Thank you.
Best Regards,
Naina
