What you "can't not do."

I wanted to follow up on the dancers from the exhibit in Wheeling who said they couldn't not dance. And Regina, who can't not write.

I've known people who can't not garden and can't not cook and can't not be nurses. The sister-in-law of a friend of mine adopted two children from Africa because her after a lifetime of caring for her own children, then her aging parents, she couldn't imagine life without people to take care of. I've known people who can't not paint and can't not work with their hands. I think the apostle Paul couldn't not preach the gospel.

What is it you "can't not do?"

haha, Diane. A good one.

I guess I can't not do what I do everyday whatever that is. I like to make one day in seven an exception to the rule, at least doing things differently on that day. I guess I can't not read. I can't not keep my mouth shut forever. I can't not be somehow in the Book. Probably more, though those come to mind. I can't not be tired (or rarely!), unless I'm asleep- another one.

Right now, I can't "not" be missing my husband terribly!
