Saving myself

I wrote a short essay. Then, restless, I roamed through the forest of my thousands of old essays. Usually that ends in disaster. Usually I end up thinking "What ever made me think these were so good?"

But not this time. This time I was okay. But I did not know how to stop, or how to shut off my computer and go to bed. So I kept reading.

Until I came to a list from some years ago, and it said, item number four:

"Be unconfident, but like you are the God of unconfidence."

And I was done.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
