Today I heard from two people whom I hadn't heard from in a whileeach from different parts of my life. What these two renewed lines of contact will mean going forward, I can't say for sure right now. But it definitely goes to show me that you shouldn't totally write things off. It's a good idea to be open to what comes. And at the same time, not wish for too much, but be present in the moment.
Like GK said last night, when asked how he does it all now: Just take one day at a time, do one thing at a time, and then do something else. (He also said he sleeps less now, but that's OK because he spent a lot of time in his 20s and 30s waiting for the phone to ring, so he had ample rest back then.)
Also, if you didn't get to see the NYT Home & Garden piece on Keillor's seven-bedroom Georgian house in St. Paul, Minn., check it out. Headline? "Where All the Rooms Are Above Average."
