This is Lucy Bellwood bringing you the latest prompt for The Right Number, a voicemail box that doesn’t always have to be all sweetness and light.
I’m grouchy! Overwhelmed, cranky, depressed, mad, sad, and generally bad. Or rather, I was until the middle of this week, when things finally started to give way. I wouldn’t be writing this otherwise. I recorded a new prompt yesterday afternoon as part of my general attempts to become un-crankied, and it felt refreshing to show up for this project from a place of feeling very…bleh. Sometimes naming the bad stuff is enough to get things moving again. Then again, sometimes it’s not.
So! This prompt is about anger and what we do about it. How it gets through us and out of us and back again. Even if you don’t want to talk about being mad this week, there’s some really good birds in the background. Dial 1-503-673-6267 to listen in.
