Evocative sentence of the day (2)

"I got to thinking about how much time I spend in my life crashing around like a great gasping fish, either squirming away from some uncomfortable distress or flopping hungrily toward ever more pleasure. And I wondered whether it might serve me (and those who are burdened with the task of loving me) if I could learn to stay still and endure a bit more without always getting dragged along on the potholed road of circumstance".
I just love that last phrase!
From "Eat, Pray, Love" (subtitled "One Woman's Search for Everything, Across Italy, India and Indonesia) by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Boo dear (welcome back btw), Liz Gilbert was talking about potholes like a bad divorce, which may be nasty but not life-threatening; not bloody great chasms like the one you have encountered on your road... I think you have every excuse for not being able to get out of bed some days. And I dont know about Singapore but in my opinion Bangkok is too hot for socks (cant find an apostrophe on this strange keyboard!).
