The Power Of Jon Stewart’s Testimony to Congress

Every now and then a speech comes along that both defines the era and transcends it.  Comedian Jon Stewart’s recent speech in front of a half-empty congressional hearing on behalf of 911 first responders is such a speech.  Students of public speaking can usefully ponder it for lessons about the craft of both construction and […]

The Mislaid Magician by Patricia C. Wrede

I've come to love the characters and the stories in this delightful trilogy by Patricia Wrede. It's adorable stuff on many levels. But I do think this third volume is the weakest of the three. It suffers from the lack of a suitably heinous villain. W ...more

Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin

Clear rating
Written as if by one of the historians of George R. R. Martin's world, with all the fussiness and arguing about sources you'd expect from an historian, this book is really just back story. It tells, in summary form, roughly 300 years of prequel to Th ...more

In some ways better than the first book, this story is pieced together from the diaries and "commonplace books" of Cecelia and Kate and follows our heroes on their respective wedding journeys on the continent, while at the same time trying to stop de ...more

There are a few delightful images of the Durrell family at play in this third installment of Gerald Durrell's memoir of his time on Corfu. It's the shortest of the three; clearly, Durrell was running out of fodder for these books by this point, but I ...more

I re-read this classic on vacation, curious to see how it held up. The interactions among the family and the eccentric (human) characters that come to Corfu are priceless. The descriptions of the natural world are poetic, luscious, and beautiful. I f ...more

Gigi's Company: Book Cover Challenge 2617 497 Jun 16, 2019 11:56AM  
“I’ve come to think that flourishing consists of putting yourself in situations in which you lose self-consciousness and become fused with other people, experiences, or tasks. It happens sometimes when you are lost in a hard challenge, or when an artist or a craftsman becomes one with the brush or the tool. It happens sometimes while you’re playing sports, or listening to music or lost in a story, or to some people when they feel enveloped by God’s love. And it happens most when we connect with other people. I’ve come to think that happiness isn’t really produced by conscious accomplishments. Happiness is a measure of how thickly the unconscious parts of our minds are intertwined with other people and with activities. Happiness is determined by how much information and affection flows through us covertly every day and year.”
