Lately, I've been re-reading Traveling Mercies by the unparalleled and legendary Ms. Lamott, as a means to recharge my batteries in an otherwise blurry yet exciting few months. This nugget continues to hit home:
“It's funny: I always imagined when I was a kid that adults had some kind of inner toolbox full of shiny tools: the saw of discernment, the hammer of wisdom, the sandpaper of patience. But then when I grew up I found that life handed you these rusty bent old tools - friendships, prayer, conscience, honesty - and said 'do the best you can with these, they will have to do'. And mostly, against all odds, they do.”
happy july. looking forward to sharing more work, as well as upcoming projects with you soon.
