100 Words: Maybe Nike Figured It Out

Life works when I don’t argue too much. I rise from writing and one word comes in — yoga.

So, I get on the mat.

I write more, pause, and again, one word — dishes.

Obediently, I head for the kitchen sink, to the dishes I made while preparing eggplant stacks, roasted vegetables, or baked greens with onions, mozzarella and a crusty top.

I do fine when I’m true to myself, follow simple inner instructions.

One time Eric asked me how I felt about the word obedient and I sputtered. Fumed. Spat.

Well, honey, I’m sure you’re smiling. Now I get it.

      Thanks, Emily! Sometimes it takes a few years to get it!!! I loved your recent post as well giving strategies for cleaning eating at summer picnics with family or whatever. I got distracted and didn’t comment but will go back and find it. ‘Twas very helpful to me.

    I can just imagine your reaction to Eric, I would do the same. I see you have a different take on the word, following your guidance~obedient to the messages,
    Great twist on a word I had not used in that context.
