This morning driving back to the docks from across the bridge I was thinking of that Mary Oliver line about her job in this life is to be dazzled. I love that.
I remember a friend visited and was blown away by our life on the water. She asked how I ever got any work done around here. I said, well I just make it my work.
Job requirement: ability to be dazzled. Love that. And it’s enough. Simple is usually best. Yesterday over coffee a friend said I was one of those people who writes everyday and I was thinking sometimes it’s because I have to write.
This morning I thought, actually, it’s because I get to write.
