When the font is wrong

by Starla J. King on January 16, 2015

I was planning to write a deep piece in response to Seth Godin’s brilliant-as-usual blog post today called “You are what you share.

fontsBut then I saw that WordPress changed the default font of writing mode, and all I can think is “that’s the wrong font.”

I can’t write when the font is wrong.

Or the room is too bright. Or the cat isn’t here.  Or my water bottle is empty. Or the contractor is supposed to show up in an hour. Or OOH LOOK, A BUNNY!

Which, I’ve discovered over the past few years, really means that

my priorities are unclear, or
my meaningful intake-to-output ratio is out of balance, or
my confidence is hanging out at the Comparison Club, or
my goals … well … aren’t.

Or maybe I’m just tired.  Or incubating. Or in a healthy quiet phase.

Or privately exploring my meaning of life.

The problem is that I can’t write when…

oh wait.

I just did. 

Turns out it’s ok, apparently, if the proverbial font is wrong.

Well, then, while I have you here, I might as well share that quote from Seth Godin’s blog post today:

Sharing an idea you care about is a generous way to change your world for the better. The culture we will live in next month is a direct result of what people like us share today. The things we share and don’t share determine what happens next.

You’re welcome.

with love,
Starla j
