I've wanted to get my hands on it for a long time, and now I am finally and blissfully engrossed in Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird. It is as good as everyone has insisted, and it's just what I need right now. I love the imagery in this,
"I wish I had a secret I could let you in on, some formula my father passed on to me in a whisper just before he died, some code word that has enabled me to sit at my desk and land flights of creative inspiration like an air-traffic controller. But I don't."
And today my thoughts are flighty and somewhat incomprehensible and so I'm thankful that this weekend is here, and that I can fly around with them, exploring new ideas, and hopefully capture them on a page somehow.
These are the words and ideas that inspired me this week, the ones that are still floating around in my head, among other things. I hope you find them as delightful as I have.
