And I Hook
Today I was running errands and listening to my IPod. I have Deanne Fitzpatrick's new cd loaded, and I'm listening to her essays on art and life in general. She was telling about how sometimes she might go someplace, get to talking, and maybe say more than she had intended. Then worry about it later. I know exactly what she means, as I imagine most of us probably do. Deanne then went on to say that it happens and we're just saying what we most likely needed to. Maybe it's best not to worry about it and just let it go. I had the most wonderful mind cleanse as I listened to this essay. I had written a letter a year ago to a couple of friends. It was very nice.... nothing weird or mean. I just needed to get some stuff off my chest. The letter was four pages! I talked about a lot. I probably said more than was necessary. I was on a roll. This letter has bugged me.... but as I listened to my IPod, I just let it go! I felt like a dust ball in the corner of my brain had finally been swept free. I expressed myself in that letter honestly and real. I wrote much about my life and passions.... I said things that are important to me. I'm glad I wrote it. Thanks for your words Deanne.
