I've been using an old, beloved SARK book for a coaster on my antique desk. Not very respectful I suppose but I think SARK would be OK with it since having it so close to hand means that I pick it up and read it every so often. Here's what's on the page for today:

realize that avoidance is temporary

Try this: curl into a ball in your bed, and let all the things you're avoiding float over your head. Then, take a nap and let all these things float off. Picture them disappearing. Sometimes when I find myself intensely avoiding something, I can suddenly glimpse that it is all my choice, and that I can really do whatever I want to! Then, I relax and avoid some more. But now, it becomes enjoyable.

...relax into avoidance...

A tall order but speaking directly to me these days that's for sure. What about you?


  1. Your words via Sark are the hammer and I am the head of a nail.

  2. Lots of people think she's passe I guess but she still speaks to me, that's for sure. Glad she speaks to you ladies as well.

  3. I love me some Sark. I have a couple of her books on my bookshelf.

  4. Well, she still speaks to me too, sis. I want her How to Be an Artist print framed for my bright purple bathroom. Still love all of her!
