Making sense

Anne Lamott, on writing ...

"We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little. But we do. We have so much we want to say and figure out.”

In the blog post dated January 8, 2015, Mom Sequitur wrote that her niece Kiersten thought she might be pregnant, a situation that had been misreported to Mom Sequitur a full decade ago. Mom Sequitur regrets the error. To clarify: Niece Kiersten has never been pregnant nor ever thought she was pregnant, nor ever hoped to be pregnant. No teen pregnancies at all for niece Kiersten. Mom Sequitur, on the other hand, was an unmarried teenager who was, in fact, pregnant. Mom Sequitur has no regrets regarding her unplanned pregnancy. If anything's going to get in the way, let it be life.
