It's tempting to settle into living room DVD hibernation mode, no matter how much I remind myself about the benefits of exercising outside .

Or sometimes it arises from the simple act of sitting down to workthe disquietude that results from what Anne Lamott so brilliantly dubbed your internal radio station, KFKD (K-Fucked): Out of the right speaker in your inner ear will come the endless stream of self-aggrandizement, the recitation of ones specialness, of how much more open and gifted and brilliant and knowing and misunderstood and humble one is. Out of the left speaker will be the rap songs of self-loathing, the lists of all the things one doesnt do well, of all the mistakes one has made today and over an entire lifetime, the doubt, the assertion that everything that one touches turns to shit, company website that one doesnt do relationships well, that one is in every way a fraud, incapable of selfless love, that one has no talent or insight, and on and on and on. ( Bird by Bird, Anne Lamott ) Finally, writing engenders intellectual discomfort: when I cant think of a particular word though its on the tip of my tongue or when I cant figure out what Im trying to say though Im certain its something REALLY BRILLIANT.
