I have fallen in love with five things today:
One, a line from a Lyn Hejinian poem: “All suffering is in the egg—now suck it out of its shell and spit / it away”
Two, some quotes by Paul Celan, especially: “There was earth inside them, and they dug.”
Three, a Snickers bar.
Four, dust on the windowsill.
Five, the way the icing slid off the blueberry cheesecake.
Day Four of the #GraceAndGratitude workshop encourages us to write a thank-you note today. Here is my letter to the universe: there is nothing more I could want.
