I found this quotation on Terresa's blog, The Chocolate Chip Waffle. She is an extraordinary poet and I seek her when I need to find the words I do not have myself.
"The novel I am constantly writing is always the same one, and it might be described as a variously sliced-up or torn-apart book of myself."
Interpret this as you may, but I found great solace in this quotation.
I think sometimes I forget that life is an ongoing project with an end result.
I may not know what that end result is but I know it's there.
And better yet, everything I do is part of the process of achieving that end result.
Nothing is wasted.
