Scary reminder, wise words and some cosmic love...

Scary reminder - tomorrow morning is my surgery (VSG)!

Wise words:

Stole this from Sarah Wynde's tumblr:
 
Bertrand Russell’s Ten Commandments 

Do not lie to yourself.

Do not lie to others unless they are exercising tyranny.

When you think it is your duty to exercise pain, scrutinize your reasons closely.

When you desire power, examine yourself closely as to why you deserve it.

When you have power, use it to build up people, not to constrict them.

Do not attempt to live without vanity, since this is impossible, but choose the right audience from which to seek admiration.

Do not think of yourself as a self-contained unit.

Be reliable.

Be just.

Be good-natured.

And Cosmic Love from Florence and the Machine...

Yikes - tomorrow morning y'all!

finally - freedom

I have read  many things about writing from Jenny Crusie but this is the best quote evah...imho.

"You only need rules when something isn’t working and you have to figure out how to fix it. If it’s working, don’t mess with it." Jenny Crusie

I can get soooooo bogged down in the rules that I am paralyzed.

Do you know Jenny's work?

Maybe This Time - her only gothic and I loved it.

Agnes and the Hitman* Don't Look Down and Wild Ride - collabs with Bob Mayer

*one of my favorite books of all times.

Welcome To Temptation
Fakin It
Fast Women
Bet Me
