“The art of losing isn’t hard to master; so many things seem filled with the intent to be lost that their loss is no disaster.
Lose something every day. Accept the fluster of lost door keys and hours badly spent.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.”
– One Art by poet Elizabeth Bishop.
Lost inspiration, sleep, blog posts, money. I’m sure there are more things that I’ve lost recently that I’ve already forgotten. I like this idea of practicing loss. Of taking life’s failures and dead ends as gracefully and as efficiently as possible, only to turn back to the table for more. It’s a true skill indeed.
What have you lost lately?
