in the end, is it all in the timing? / by mrm

I was given a card on Tuesday that I didn't have a chance to read until today. An excerpt:
"Flannery O'Connor wrote that 'the way to despair is to refuse to have any kind of experience,' which just about sums up everything NOT you!"
This is, in so many ways, every kind of reminder I need right now. (Bonus: The card-giver didn't even know how much I love Flannery O'Connor! Serendipity, I thank you. Don't desert me now.)
