The Writing Life

As I write each day, I try and remember these wise words from the poet, Jane Kenyon: 

"Be a good steward of your gifts.  Protect your time.  Feed your inner life.  Avoid too much noise.  Read good books, have good sentences in your ears.  Be by yourself as often as you can.  Walk.  Take the phone off the hook.  Work regular hours.” 

It seems that my dog, Sally, would have no trouble with most of these...except for the reading part!
