Chronicle of a life fully lived and beautifully embraced

Most of the memoirs I have read clearly show a path from a defining moment but this collection of life stories doesn’t seem to follow a definitive progression and that is a beautiful thing. Life is often messy, unpredictable and when we pull ourselves out of a crisis of identity our path can resemble that of a drunk baby more than a mountaintop monk. In one of the chapters Linda Durham says time is not linear when describing how one moment

Still Moving, an engrossing memoir, could alternatively have been titled The Unsinkable Linda Durham. The author relates the ups and downs of her eclectic life as a longtime art dealer, and we go from the serendipity of her establishing her eponynous contemporary art gallery in Santa Fe, previously the land of cowboy and Indian art, to it’s wistful demise, c. thirty years later. Her story is that of a dreamer and irrepressible optimist, left with debt, an identity that no longer fits, and the ne ...more

Memoirs certainly are a category of their own. There are plenty out there, and I always think it is very brave to publish one's life story with all it's bumps and imperfections for the world to read.

The start of this autobiography was very relatable and offered some truly scrumptious writing. The ordinary writing is interlaced with journal entry excerpts from the author's actual journal, which is a great touch. I was instantly fascinated and eager to see where the story would go.

What do Mobius strips, tequila shot glasses a Playboy bunny, Moby Dick, and the Dali Lama have to do with each other? They are all just parts of the author’s life. This is an endearing telling of a woman’s life. The book is written in chapters with each having a different theme coinciding with a specific time in her life. She begins from t

“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list”

Linda Durham’s memoir Still Moving was an interesting read, and I must say I really enjoyed reading a memoir by someone who isn’t a celebrity! In Still Moving, Durham takes us on a non-linear journey of her life from age 4 to present and through her journeys around the world.

The composition of this book was something that I have never seen in a memoir! It is written almost as a bunch of short stories, and is not chronological. It is made up of na

Linda Durham takes off from the 2011 demise of her storied Santa Fe contemporary art gallery, and moves, forward and backward, through scenes and reminiscences from a remarkable (and ongoing) life. The heart and soul of this consistently readable and engrossing survey is the connections Durham makes as her restless soul takes her on jaunts to faraway places with strange-sounding names. You'll ride with her in dilapidated third-world buses teeming with humanity, with the emphasis on the humanity, ...more

Linda's life didn't always go the way she had intended and after finding herself alone she decided for her 70th birthday that she would travel the world! Doing one of the things that many only dream of! I really enjoyed the fact that the chapters are broken down into different time segments in her life starting from the age of four until her recent endeavors! I liked it! If you are interested in traveling, memoirs and life lessons that you can reflect on then this would be the book for you! ...more
