For me, exercise is always a great way to deal with writer's block. A long run outside can do wonders... I find the ideas, as well as the endorphins, tend to kick in around mile 3. A good sweaty SoulCycle class is also a great cure all...the more I sweat and push myself the clearer and more sharp I tend to be when I sit back down in front of the computer. I think the key is to get up and do something that challenges you in a different way. And oh yeah, I've also scarfed down multiple pints of ice cream in frustration....Chubby Hubby makes for a chubby writer (less)

“Revisionist history can be a tricky thing. Time passes, memories fade, oral history muddies, and transgressions, while sometimes subconsciously, are conveniently rewritten.

It would be so very easy to now say that I was an eager and attentive audience, the dutiful granddaughter lapping up every last detail of her grandmother's life and stories. It would be so very simple to say that I sat with her and talked for hours, asking if she was lonely when Papou left for America, afraid when the Nazis ransacked her home or hesitated before opening the door to welcome her Jewish friends inside. But that isn't the case. Not even close.”
Yvette Manessis Corporon, Something Beautiful Happened: A Story of Survival and Courage in the Face of Evil

“How do you accept that tragic irony is a cruelty reserved not merely for Shakespearean plot twists? How do you admit to your son that monsters exist outside of fairy tales? How do you explain to a child something you can't understand yourself?”
Yvette Manessis Corporon, Something Beautiful Happened: A Story of Survival and Courage in the Face of Evil

“Of all the high-ranking Christian leaders across Nazi-occupied Europe, Bishop Damaskinos of Greece was the only one who publicly stood up to denounce the Nazis' deportation of Jews.”
