While I was on The Practical Minimalists podcast to talk about the Enneagram last month, I noticed how often I said a type needed to "learn to be." Sometimes it was followed by a particular quality or lesson but often it was the literal state of being. While each type... Continue reading

New Jim Crow is SO GOOD. Every month I'm like, "I really should finish it." But there's so much to absorb so I'm staying at this slow pace. I have been loving The Art Of Happiness! His innate goodness shines from the very pages. I hope the episode will be helpful to you. I have very strong feelings about the order so there's no way I could have been as unbiased and gracious as they were. Your friend's concern breaks my heart and I wish it wasn't warranted. I have to hope there are enough of us who will speak out against things like that happening.
No way to say it and stay spoiler-free!
The Bear and the Nightingale was so good and different! Hope you enjoy it.
Someday I want to have a Little Free Library of my own. I'm taking notes. I only managed to watch one episode of Jane The Virgin so I'm not up to the big twist yet. Hopefully soon!
Thanks, Michele!

Founding Farmers is seriously so good. Just be aware the brunch is a buffet and prix fixe. It's worth it in my estimation but I know everyone has different ideas on how much they want to spend at a restaurant.
YES! I think you'll really like it.
That is so awesome to hear! If there are any must-try places, feel free to email me your recommendations.
Oh, I hope you'll enjoy TSIAS as much as I did!
When I think of February, I'll remember my niece pushing the pedals while my brother pushed her tricycle on the sidewalk. I'll remember the warm weight of my nephew in my arms as I swayed back and forth. I'll remember how I kept trying, no matter how many false starts... Continue reading

Thanks, Janet! I wish there was more to tell about this particular crush but it remains an unanswered question.

He let me wear his coat during class that day. It was brown corduroy lined with cream shearling. It was too big even for him but such was fashion in the 90s. Swaths of fabric pooled around my body. I pushed the thick sleeves back whenever I needed to take... Continue reading
