Current Books: I have been on a Carol Shields kick and am reading the last novel she wrote before her death, Unless. I also read The Box Garden and Small Ceremonies (her first novels) recently. I am working through Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. Oddly, this concept has been more helpful in my daily life than in my writing, thus far. Learning to take my days “bird by bird.” Gah, I love Anne Lamott. Am also loving the book of Isaiah for Bible study. The second half of Isaiah, more specifically. It is all about comfort, restoration, reconciliation, forgiveness and redemption. These are all themes that are so important to my life, right now.
Current Playlist: Audio books for now. Listened to Sula by Toni Morrison and am onto Love, also by Toni Morrison. She reads her own work, and she is amazing.
