I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.
- I loved this experiment in New York. The following question was posed, “We Asked People To Tell Us Their Biggest Regrets – But What They All Had In Common Was Heartbreaking.” I encourage you to watch the 3 minute video. It might make you think about what you want to do in your life right now.
- How does an Olympian and orthopedic surgeon end up filing bankruptcy and living in a trailer? I watched Debi Thomas as a young girl and admired her moxie. Washington Post chronicles her triumph and sadness in the piece, “The best African American figure skater in history is now bankrupt and living in a trailer.”
- Who doesn’t love a great debate? I was thrilled to have my essay included in Brain,Child last month. Where do you come down on the issue, “Do you invite the whole class to you kids’ birthday parties?” Read both perspectives and arrive at your own decision.
- “Every story I have ever told has a kind of breach to it, I think. You could say that my writing isn’t quite right. That all the beginnings have endings in them.” Exquisite storytelling by Lydia Yuknavitch in Guernica. Spend some time with her essay, Woven, today.
