I've been meaning to write up something since the election, but things kept getting in the way...things like finishing my book! That's right! I've got a full, first draft. Now, it's time for the tough stuff: editing.
Still, I've been keeping up with the world. I'm still on my NPR kick. I haven't given up on educating myself as if I were pursuing a graduate degree in life. After finishing both the Feminine Mystique and Fear of Flying, I'm moving on to Simone de Beauvoir (my academic streak had a little diversion into reading about the zipless f***).
But it's November, and the country is (mostly) on a post-election high. So, here's one big challenge for this week: what about/in your country are you most grateful for?
That seems just the right topic for the month of Thanksgiving :).
I am grateful that I live in a country and a state where I can express my views without fear of persecution.
