I loved reading this book. As it's a book of essays, it had been my quick pick-up book...when I had some spare time, I'd read an essay. It was always enjoyable and it filled my time. I had run out of some of that spare time, so it sat on my bookshelf for a few months. Today I laid in bed with a sick child, holding her while she slept. During this time, I finished the book. It was so fun. My first question to the author (someone I'd like to call my mentor), is if he laughed out loud as he wrote?...more
Favorite line: "I could alter my fantasies, my ideal versions of how things should be, to allow room for some warts and human foibles. I could, or should, 'get real,' as my daughter often says. That would give me some room to slop around, to make some mistakes without drowning or giving up. After all, it's not the responsibility that slows me down and discourages me, it's the futility of my puny efforts contrasted with the fantastic ideal I've conjured up."
