This is my favorite quote of the day:
“There’s a lot to be said for not giving two flying fuck’s Mr. Darwin.”
It’s from my book, I’ve been reading Generation A by Douglas Coupland. I like it. It’s interesting. He Tweets. I quite enjoyed a this bit of the book today when one of the characters, Zack said “To cope with this realization I chose nature’s ultimate ego-preservation tool: I chose not to give a shit”.
This book had a good story to me before I even cracked the spine. I won’t tell you after I read it. I love this time of year when the seasons change. Magic.
When I was last home visiting Mum I came across an old journal of mine from when I was eleven. To read it is simply divine. I am happy to relive my own life through it. My writing style is similar and my attitude is the same. I will post some excerpts from it one of these days!
“You must first be
who you really are,then,
do what you need to do,
in order to have what you want.”
– Margaret Young
This year, again, I am attempting to read the book Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy by Sarah Ban Breathnach. The reason make another attempt is due to the fact it is written in the style of one page per day starting on January first and I would like to read it as so. The 366 essay’s focus around finding simplicity and living a more content and fulfilling way of life. It is a lovely book. So lovely that this very copy came to me because my mum’s dear friend gave her a copy two years in a row! Ha!
