As I get ready to write today,
hoping to choose the perfect words for my final chapter,
I hold Jeannine’s work up as inspiration.
From BORROWED NAMES by Jeannine Atkins:
As if staying in one place
is the sole measure of goodness,
as if ponds are better than running rivers or rain.
Jeannine sets the bar pretty damned high, doesn’t she?

THIS is a brilliant book. Jeannine set the bar extremely high!
She is so good, isn’t she? I love this book. Taking little tiny bites before going back for more.
It’s gorgeous storytelling. I’ve been recommending it to all my friends.
Gorgeous. Yes. I haven’t finished it yet because I’m taking it slowly, so I can enjoy the full flavor. It really did inspire me today to slow down, and find the right words.
Yes, she does.
That particular quote kept me focused today so I’d take the time I needed to find the words I needed. It was rough going this afternoon but then I hit my stride this evening. Yes!
Tracy, you are kind. I hope to inspire more than set bars (not so good on the sports metaphors!) But I guess I do hold up somethings for myself, too, but no yelling from the sidelines. Patience, and we all get there.
I may be kind but you’re amazing! This little snippet helped me remember today that if I take the time, I can find the right words for what needs saying. Thank you.
