The Surfaces of Things

Anne Lamott talks in her new book "Grace, Eventually" about the untidiness of her family, and how important it was to have a neat public appearance to disguise the problems of her family. She finally learned when she grew up that taking care of the surface of things could also be a way of nurturing their insides, not just putting on an appearance.

This has been a great help to me this week, and I have been trying to clean and straighten up more, just to make our lives easier, and free up energy for what is truly needed.
