The Writer’s Almanac, Nov. 19, 2012

Garrison Keillor’s poem today is Louise Erdrich’s “Advice to Myself.” Given that I have wasted much of the day being angry at my husband for asking me to rinse out a cereal bowl, it’s good advice to me, too.

Plus we get the added benefit of listening to Garrison read a poem. An experience of calm.

Rinse out the bowl, Bethany. Move on.
