So I’ve been thinking . . . it’s time for a change.
I can hardly believe I started this web site a year ago. Wednesday, October 12 was my one-year anniversary. Happy anniversary to me!
Now seems as good of a time as any to make some changes. I’ve been ruminating on some ideas, and really thinking about how I want to reflect myself. The word that keeps coming up is: authentic. Be my most authentic self. Who is that? I’m still exploring—probably always will—and yet I have more certainty about who I am and my voice.
Stay tuned to see the changes, unveiling in the weeks to come.
And another thing (or two or five) . . .
- Cubs win the NLCS!
- Your vote matters so vote. And lest anyone doubt the power of your vote, in this case the women’s vote, know that it does make a difference.
- Seven lessons from seven years of reading, writing, and living.
- The Nobel Prize in Literature was announced this week. Interesting choice.
- Because this made me happy.
I’ve been reading . . . We Have Always Lived in the Castle still. I’ve been reading quite a bit of nonfiction as research for a project, and I haven’t had much time to read anything else.
Ok, The Book Thief. I promised my thoughts on this book. I really liked this book because of three things: 1.) fresh and new way of narrating the story (that works), 2.) Liesel, the lead character—loved her, and 3.) the history. I’m kind of a sucker for stories set during WWII.
I don’t typically gravitate toward YA books but don’t let the genre get in your way of reading a great book. Definitely worth a read if you love character-driven stories, like words, and you love to read a really good book. It’s thoughtful, emotional, and a bit offbeat.
I’ve been watching . . . Westworld on HBO. Not sure yet if I like it or not. It’s pretty twisted. I need to watch it a few more times to make my decision on it. In the meantime, still watching my favorite digital series wild_life with Bertie Gregory.
I’ve been listening to . . . Rasa, a duo who performs Indian devotional music with both traditional Indian and Western instrumentation, or, to most people, relaxation and wellness music. Very soothing music and gentle to my soul.
Have a wonderful weekend!
