Beyond those labels, I'm the sort of person who tries to find the joy in every situation.

Lydia’s Recent Updates

The Light We Carry by Michelle Obama
“If you choose to try to make a life with another person, you will live by that choice. You'd find yourself having to choose again and again to remain rather than run. It helps if you enter into a committed relationship prepared to work, ready to be humbled and willing to accept and even enjoy living in that in-between space, bouncing between the poles of beautiful and horrible, sometimes in the span of a single conversation, sometimes over the course of years. And inside of that choice and those years you'll almost certainly come to see that there is no such thing as a 50-50 balance, instead it will be like beads on an abacus, sliding back and forth, the maths rarely tidy, the equation never quite solved....”

Joseph Anton by Salman Rushdie
"This book would have been twice as good if it had been half as long. I loved this book for the first 250 pages where it tells the story of Rushdie's early life, his struggle to succeed as a writer, and his relationships, all leading up to the publica" Read more of this review »

Christmas is the perfect time to reflect on the past for the living and the dead alike.

Here’s an interesting tidbit of information for you as I get this review started: all of these stories are set in the same village, Brandley. Keep that in mind as

“You’re not destined or chosen, I wish I could tell you that you were if that would make it easier, but it’s not true. You’re in the right place at the right time, and you care enough to do what needs to be done. Sometimes that’s enough.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

“It's one thing to be told about the world that was. It's another to see a piece it.”
