Wintertime, and the Living isn’t Easy

Wait.  It’s not officially winter yet, right?  So make the phrasing work… you get the idea.

I’m reading The Four Agreements: A Toltec Wisdom Book, by Don Miguel Ruiz.  The book was a gift from a student, who told me, “You made me believe in my writing.”  I’m paraphrasing her, but it was something like that.  What a kindness… not just the book, which is fabulous, but the appreciation expressed by a student.

I’m getting tired, dear readers.  It’s Tuesday, which means it’s my longest workday (five classes, in total … teaching, that is, not attending) —although I have to attend to teach — sort of.  I can always transport myself in a dream state, if I really have to.  LOL.  It’s 5 p.m. or so, I’ve had Chik-fil-A for dinner; I recommend the spicy wrap, and I have class again in forty minutes.  So the positive change that I’m squeezing in right now is reading from The Four Agreements.

 
You’ve got ten minutes, right?  Read something inspiring.

That’s strong stuff, friends.  We better use language carefully.
