Things I have been letting go:
#1 Having Googled the phrase “life is letting go,” today I am letting go of any concerns about being unoriginal. I have not had very many original thoughts in my life, or perhaps none at all. That would make me normal. There are worse fates. Many people like hearing the same things over and over anyhow. That would make them normal. There are worse fates. Have I mentioned that I have not had many original thoughts in my life?
#2 Red flats that gave me blisters. I have nothing humorous to add here. Blisters are a serious affront.
#3 and #4 A gray hoodie and lace-up black boots that, being youthful in style, made me look old.
#5, 6, 7 Two good books going away to bless someone else’s existence. Also one earnest novel set in South Africa that I thought I was supposed to be interested in. I wasn’t.
#8 About 70 DVDs that Morgan and I realized we weren’t ever going to watch again. Thrillers don’t thrill the second time around, nor do plots twist quite as well. The comedies and seasonal stuff stayed though. In our house, “Christmas with the Kranks” is high art.
So, eight items covers the eight days since my last post. Lest you think I am boring in my conscientiousness, I want it known to all that I live on the edge, and from this day forward, you may address me as “DangerGurrl.” Seriously. The photo below explains.
