Water in any form is beloved in our high desert clime. I had planned to deluge you in photos of our snowy days. Of course I distracted myself with this and that, and then with a (in my mind) ridiculous discussion about coffee and butter. In fact the whole butter controversy just has me shaking my head.
I think all of us agree butter is far better for us than margarine, right? Then along comes someone who insists only butter from Free Range, Grass Fed, Organically Raised cows is good enough.
Piffle. Sure Organic butter is probably better for us than the cheaper stuff. But as long as it’s all butter, not margarine or a margarine blend, you’ve taken a big step in the right direction.
Same as with writing. Reality will tell us there are only so many slots on any of the best seller lists. Experience tells us as soon as we start telling ourselves we’re not as good as….and therefore not good enough…we are. BICHOK, baby
