This episode, like so many On Being episodes, broke my heart and senses wide open. It was really a gift... I find myself unable to stop thinking about the exercise: write down 10 observations of every day life, no interpretations or metaphor. And not being able to? I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old and this is the kind of example of "life in the now and future" that keeps me awake at night. And am I setting a good example? No. But this show has subtly, richly, lovingly and exquisitely drawn me back into the abyss of life, love and art. Thank you Krista. The dialogue was- as usual but even more so- pure poetry.
