11/11

How hard it is to keep any one intention[,] any one attitude toward a piece of work[,] any one tone[,] any one anything. I find a certain peace in my soul these days that is very fine–lead us not into temptation. The story level, bah. Work, work, work. Dear God, let me work, keep me working, I want so to be able to work. If my sin is laziness I want to be able to conquer it.

I looked back over some of these entries.*

– A Prayer Journal, Flannery O’Connor
