Every time I go to my doctor for my annual or semi-annual exam, I am given a printout of my prescriptions. Although I am not fluent in the language of pharmaceuticals, I dutifully refresh my knowledge of what and why and when and how much. Recently I prescribed something similar to myself from myself regarding my shadowed deficit of the mindful living of my days. Inspired by UU minister Forrest Church’s Lifecraft; Penelope Lively’s anti-memoir, Making It Up; and Garth Brook’s The River, I am feeling better.
