Short Thought 176 (motivation)

Some days all I want to do is stay home and eat cheese. I don’t actually do that, but I do have variations of the thought, days when I feel utterly unmotivated and listless, when I feel dissatisfied and vaguely apathetic, both about life and what’s in the refrigerator. Why cheese? Because even if I don’t know what I want and I feel fussy and nothing appeals, I’m always interested in cheese.

    “Stay home and eat cheese.” Did you swipe that line from Shakespeare, Colette? Spinoza? Montaigne? Al Capone? Is it an esoteric gangsta allusion like “Vito sleeps with the fishes,” ? Anyway, it’s a great line – very arresting.

    Btw, you seem to have deleted a post, but some of us get notifications by email. πŸ™‚ To that deleted post I was going to comment, “THIS! THIS! Exactly this. I’ve been fighting that big time for the last few years, and I just don’t get it.” πŸ™‚

      Oh no! I was looking through my drafts (which are in various states) & accidentally hit publish totally randomly. I wasn’t sure how to remedy that – or if anyone got the actual post in their email (googling the subject prematurely made me think they didn’t) – so I hastily deleted it. So thank you! Your words give me more incentive to fish it out and fix it up for a proper publication.
