Woman on the edge (of my coffee cup)

Starbucks does this thing called “The Way I See It." According to their Web site, “notable figures” (or really anyone with an opinion and an asshole, far as I can tell) share thoughts and expressions of “how they see it” in an effort to spark coffee house gab.

Stamped on my morning take-out cup is #76, authored by Anne Morriss (double r, double s, which is how I would always introduce myself were that my last name). She describes herself as an “organization builder, restless American citizen, optimist.”

“The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating – in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life.”

Sounds like a woman yearning for other hands down her pants.
