I watched as...

fwriction: Writing for Guardian Books, AL Kennedy shows that even disappointment as a writer can be soothed, by hot cocoa and a trustworthy reader. I left knowing how to make cocoa – I still use his method – and feeling bruised. But I also knew it was all right. Somehow, it was going to be all right. I would start again, and I would rewrite.

Her generously soaped hands rinsed and dried, she resumed her position on the divan, draped a quilt around her shoulders, and returned the pillowed book to her lap. The pages washed golden with a sun that seemed to have just turned to read with her.
After she popped the last of the turkey club into her mouth, she took the book and pillow from her lap and a sip of lukewarm coffee before swinging her legs off the side of the divan to the floor to wash her hands. The book was new — she didn’t want to damage it just yet. Her bare feet hugged the cool cherry and slowed her progress in their relish as they slapped and slipped and...

But the unforeseen delays coming home were hellish. It wasn’t unusual to wait two hours or more for the “track to clear,” or some other vague notion. Usually I’d just wear my iPod to avoid all of the complainers, and read or draw other...

Despite the frustrations of applying for jobs online and the online application not working…(what’s the point when the internet version doesn’t work? it’s…10x more inefficient. Or it seems so because the internet’s supposed to make things easier. Whatever, I’ve given up for today)… & half a finger wrapped in gauze (it’s more comfortable...

“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” —- Wisdom for life.
