the artist's way

this book and i have circled each other for years, like boxers dancing around each other, looking to make the first punch. it shows up in conversations, online articles & blog posts, celebrity interviews (Jenna Fischer loves it). i've checked it out from the library several times. each time i would rifle through the pages, and i would just know that it wasn't the right time to read it.

Matt and i were at a friend's house tuesday night, and once again, the book came up in conversation. i mentioned my non-history with the title, and she walked over to her bookshelf, handed me her used copy and said, "here... now whenever the right time comes, you'll have a copy waiting for you."

i think her generosity was the motivation i needed to make it "the right time"...
