I adore this post by Gretchen Rubin in which she names her patron saints.
I’ve been thinking a lot about who my patron saints are. I find this exercise quite difficult! A few who come to mind quickly:
Annie Dillard – observant, grateful, wise
Anne Lamott – funny, irreverent, prolific
Georgia O’Keeffe – fierce, brave, celebrator of femininity and of the sky
Joan of Arc – intrepid, heroic, certain
Marie Curie – brilliant, fearless, possessed of power and wounds that came from the same source
Who are your patron saints?
