📅 Thought for today:
‘Guilt is cancer. Guilt will confine you, torture you, destroy you as an artist. It’s a black wall. It’s a thief.’
— Dave Grohl

I’ve wanted a Dave Grohl on these pages for a while, and today’s the day. I love Dave Grohl, and I love the Foo Fighters, so why choose a quote about the impact of guilt?
Well, how do I feel about forgetting to do my Thought for Today in the morning?
It makes no sense, I do these words for me, and I’ve had a brill day.
A catch over Zoom this morning with two friends in Yorkshire turned into a three-hour natter of epic and rather brilliant proportions. I could have cheerfully continued for another three hours.
And that set the tone for today. I’ve made ice cream (strawberry) mown grass, made supper, cleared stuff and had a very enjoyable chat with one of our two sons on Zoom.
It is now early evening – I’ve not missed a day in the past 550 days and never been later than noon.
As I write those words, a twinge of guilt stabs me in the chest and then I relax.
You are the only one who said “you must…” and I’ve changed that to “I prefer…” and now I feel OK.
