Go Read

Mizzi has written a fabulous blog entry that has moved me intensely with its grace and sense of calm and acceptance. Thank you, Mizzi. The last paragraph was something that, for some reason, I really needed to read this morning.

I agree, Mizzi, it's a beautiful post. Thanks for sharing it.

Sara, I'm sorry all the testing hasn't given you the resolution you were looking for. Any chance you could see a dermatologist who might look at it with a fresh perspective?

As for the CR stuff...
When it comes right down to it, we're *all* in DTBIC mode. We all have our problems and pressures and obstacles that seem to keep us from reaching our goals. None of us (with the possible exception of MR who, I maintain, is not entirely human) is perfect when it comes to CRON. Actually, none of us is perfect period. I'm not even sure if anyone knows what perfection would look like.

The teacher at the Zen center would say you're already perfect just as you are. You just don't know it yet.

Personally, I've come to realize that it does no good to constantly focus on reaching that perfect place off in the distance. The relentless pursuit of perfection usually ends in frustration, at least for me. Instead, I just try to keep going in the right direction, doing the best I can, whatever you want to call it. I thought of that when I saw the picture of that winding road in your post yesterday. It served to remind me that the journey is often much more fun and interesting than the destination itself.

Whatever you do, please keep writing! I don't care if it's about CRON or wine or some fabulous play you've been to see - I love reading your posts. One thing I love about CRON is that it seems to attract intelligent and interesting people, regardless of whether they actually wind up practicing strict CRON. So don't feel you have to write about CRON...or food...or health. Life is much too full to limit yourself to those topics anyway.

Beautiful, inspired writing, Robin. Makes my eyes water. (My aunt says I used to say this last statement often between the ages of 6 to 8 whenever she would leave my hometown in Puerto Rico to return to her home in Europe. We only saw her once every other year.)
Cheers,
Arturo
