Today I happened across a recording of Jennifer, a friend of mine from grad school, and I stumbling over the piano attempting to play “Say Something.” There are loads of mistakes. It was about four years ago and a wonder to hear again.
(If you want to distinguish between our voices, she’s the who starts out saying, “I don’t remember.”)
I’m amused, and it lightened my mood.

One day I wrote my own obituary with having imagined that I accomplished nothing in order to confront my worst truths about myself and, subsequently, to relieve myself of them, and you all have to promise that when I die you’ll print it. (Click twice to enlarge.)
I hope this has helped you face your own anxieties. x
