So I’ve been thinking . . . about 100 years from now. Not of what the future will be like but about what I would want people to know about me 100 years from now.
I saw this quote from Gloria Steinem when she was asked: What do you want people to know about you 100 years from now? She answered, “I tried to leave the world a little better, more equal, more joyous than it was when I got here.”
That got me thinking about how I would answer that question. My answer: That I tried to leave the world a little bit better of a place and that I added more love and compassion to the world. What would your answer be?
I’ve been reading . . . The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. It’s a short book and quick read. Brilliant writing about a topic I never thought would hold my interest. If you haven’t read any Hemingway and want to, this book might be a good one to start with.
I’ve been watching . . . The Voice. I’m not a fan of reality shows but I like this one. I love the positive and encouraging approach from the coaches, and when they give feedback, it’s constructive and supportive. I’m all for shows that model positivity, and care and promote real talent. Jordan Smith, one of the finalists, has an amazing voice. Gives me chills every time I hear him sing.
I’ve been listening to . . . The National again. I love their Trouble Will Find Me album. Great music for this fall weather. (Adele’s new album is out now so that’s next on my list!)
