Pay Attention!

Good advice for the week, as well as in life in general. Originally from a NYT article which I can no longer access online.

Wonderful advice from Susan Sontag, speaking to college students a few years ago:

“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”

EXCELLENT, I could not have said it better! Roberta who just got done eating a bowl of fresh strawberries! Happy Labor Day, you can think of me laboring tomorrow!

Very good, Catherine, and thanks for the excellent reminder. We saw "Cars" (movie) and they said something similar but on a much simpler level. Off to bed here!
