I work; try to take care of myself; eat right, which entails shopping and cooking; walk the dog; have a social life; have a meditation practice; try to write every day, not to mention reading -- What time does this leave for sex?
Forget about reading, you say? Not with books like Veronica around. You don't have to forget about sex with this book, either, since it oozes from every line. But that's a good thing ;)
"Immersion in the life of the world, a willingness to be inhabited by and to speak for others, including those beyond the realm of the human, these are the practices not just of the bodhisattva but of the writer." --Jane Hirshfield
