in praise of half-assery
It's been a handful of Sundays
with no Sunday letter from me.
But here I am.
Life's been overfull and inside out.
Sundays have found me in various states
as my dad passed away this summer.
I haven't had the wherewithal
to sit and write
(or to go to the gym
return the library books
cook the dinners
As I'm returning to all those practices
I'm embracing half-assery.
This is a skill I teach
to my kickass clients
who tend to full-ass
This is us:
Half-assing means doing just a little.
Means cutting the corners
that you tend to smooth and tuck
Means giving yourself a b r e a k,
and trusting that whatever you can do -
10min at the gym
1 library book found and returned
3 rounds of conscious breathing
Rotisserie chicken and microwaved rice
Your half- or quarter- or eighth- or even 1/256 ass
