Thought for the Day: Tuesday
Anita Sharpe on Life

'Having found myself faced with that old bull-session question (What would you do if you found out you had a year to live?), I learned that a woman with children has the privilege or duty of bypassing the existential. What you do, if you have little kids, is lead as normal a life as possible, only with more pancakes.

'If you have ever told yourself breezily, that life is too short to spend any of it with your childhood neighbor's annoying husband, those words now take on the gleeful raiment of simple fact. The knowledge that time's expenditure is important, that it is up to you, is one of the headiest freedoms you will ever feel.' -- Marjorie Williams, writing about her diagnosis of terminal cancer in the October issue of Vanity Fair
