The monkey still makes my day.  Such a sweet little face.

This week I thought I’d quote from one of my commonplace books.  I spend a lot of time adding to it but then the words just sit there.  I realized that is me being selfish … off the pages of some beautiful stories into my head and then out again through my fingers onto a different page only to be locked away.

I have been self reflecting so much lately.  Waiting for the shoe that never drops and the watch pot that never boils.  Out damn spot worry as I wait for news. Life changing news but not me, for a friend.

Anyhoo, without further ado, here is real doozy of a keeper.  For anyone facing adversity, may this lift your day:

“I love that gutsy cement hero woman and I also love the real potty-mouthed housemaid with a ruffled bonnet who is buried somewhere below that crooked, faceless grave. I love the musketball not hitting me, and I also love the musketball.   I love goddamnit motherfucker. And I really love Well, that could’ve been worse”  ~ The Bright Hour by Nina Riggs.

Here is my full review.  Just as poignant then as now.  Not my review.  The book 🙂

Rules and Ping Back to #1linerWeds.

As always, more to come.
