Don’t Worry

Things take the time they take.
Don’t worry.

How many roads
did St. Augustine follow
before he became St. Augustine?

- Mary Oliver

I like reading about writing. Memoir, how to, memoir disguised as how to…I gobble it up. Reading is a safe playground for me and sometimes consumption is a way to learn about the craft.

But I also think:

- Reading is a trap. Reading the work of another takes me away from writing.

- Reading is essential. What I read informs what I write.

- Reading is distraction. It is the best way I know…
