Today’s featured book is a new one that speaks to what is happening in our world these days: Life In Pieces, by Dawn O’Porter.
Earlier this year I got myself a paper diary. I wanted to go back to writing things down, rather than having everything on my phone. I found it today and got so sad when I saw how empty it was. Just months of nothing. No people, no meetings, no life. I sat and looked at it and got a little weepy. There was supposed to be all this other stuff, and it just wasn’t there. There was only emptiness.
