Love Your Guts


I can’t exactly explain it, but for some reason I can’t come up with a blog for this month.  I seem to have writer’s block a common phenomenon that happens to the best of writers.  Maybe it’s the chemo, maybe it’s the ridiculous time I spend on my current obsession with juicing or maybe it’s because the Moon is square to unruly Uranus, opposing warrior Mars while in conjunction with passionate Pluto resulting in some turbulent days.  Whatever the reason, my friend Clare had a sixth sense about my predicament and saved the day. 

Dear Deanne,

In an old Good Housekeeping Magazine in the marina library there was an article by Katie Couric about all the good advice she had received and one was from Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google.  It had so much in common with your approach that I thought you would love it.  Maybe if this week’s blog is taking a long time to write you could plonk this one in to tide you over:

“Find a way to say yes to things.  Say yes to invitations to a new country, say yes to meet new friends, say yes to learn something new.  Yes is how you get your first job, and your next job, and your spouse, and even your kids.  Even if it is a bit edgy, a bit out of your comfort zone, saying yes means that you will do something new, meet someone new, and make a difference.  Yes lets you stand out in a crowd, be the optimist, see the glass full, be the one everyone comes to.  Yes is what keeps us all young”

Love your guts,


Thank you for taking care of me Clare.
