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.
- “Her Loss” by Lindy West is an important and must-read piece this week. This line resonated on a deep, guttural level: “Whatever your personal opinion of the Clintons, as politicians or as human beings, that dynamic is real. We, as a culture, do not take women seriously on a profound level. We do not believe women. We do not trust women. We do not like women.”
- Are you feeling stressed? Listen to music. Melanie Curtin in Inc. explores this phenomena in “Neuroscience Says Listening to This Song Reduces Anxiety by Up to 65 Percent.”
- Brain Pickings highlights one of my favorite poets, Naomi Shihab Nye and her poem, Kindness.
- “Mother as Witness” by Melissa Uchiyama is a beautiful essay on mothering and letting go featured in Brain, Child.
