Do Something

Incredible quote from a book on writing and life I recently finished: Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.

“To be engrossed by something outside ourselves is a powerful antidote for the rational mind, the mind that so frequently has its head up its own ass – seeing things in such a narrow and darkly narcissistic way that it presents a colo-rectal theology, offering hope to no one.” Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird.

How great is that quote? For me ~ the often too rational, too serious, too self-absorbed self ~ this quote seriously speaks to me!

Grace & Peace.
