I freely admit to borrowing the title for this blog from Stephen McCauley’s most recent book, “Insignificant Others” (Simon & Schuster, 2010). Richard, the main character, likes to make mental lists of his shortcomings in qualified form: At least I didn’t…..
This appealed to me. I’ve been thinking of starting a new blog. My old one was full of a lot of whining about post-divorce life. I don”t want to revisit that, but neither am I ready for an Oprah-type gratitude journal where I would only list the wonderful things that happen in life, because frankly, life ain’t always so grand these days.
Richard’s “at least” format offers the opportunity for a semi-optimistic and self-deprecating outlook and I think I can handle that. Who knows, maybe Oprah’s way will be next. 😉
