I've been reading (as in I've read and am rereading) Susannah Conway's book This I Know: Notes on Unraveling the Heart. I don't have words for how much I love it so I won't even try. I just think everyone should read it...and so I recommended it to several people and one friend in particular who I KNEW needed it. As she was reading through it she'd text me and we'd meet and we had some of the best conversations. Last time we met she asked me about my 10 things (an exercise Susannah included at the end of one of the chapters).
So, I tried to come up with things I haven't already listed here.
Here you go Teresa. This list is for you. And me. And whoever.
2. I love solitude.
3. Until I need my people, then I NEED my people.
4. My idea of heaven is big water and big trees.
5. Music is necessary. Absolute must have.
6. Quiet is golden. It's important to have both and know when each is needed. I suppose that kinda goes along with number 2, so I should add a number 11.
7. I over use commas (a lot, lot, lot) and exclamation points (I'm so not sorry about this!) and ellipsis(ses...)...oh and (parentheses). I guess I just overuse punctuation. It's ok.
8. I don't like clocks. Some people think this is weird. But. Whatever.
9. I like to underline my books. Which is is why I need to buy non-fiction.
10. I swear. A lot. My child reprimands me and I try to keep it appropriate (like in public and such) but I do swear and I don't apologize for it.
11. I have a fourth sibling. On my other list I said I love all three of my
siblings. But now I have four and I love him too...I love all FOUR of my
siblings. And I think that is the perfect way to end this list!
