2012: April

I had a wonderful dinner with an old friend from business school in New York one night.

I mourned the passing of Adrienne Rich.

The world burst into bloom, and we admired it on notice things walks, bike rides, and a trip to our favorite place, Mount Auburn Cemetery.

My favorite blog post this month: Perfect

I read Contents May Have Shifted by Pam Houston, Mrs. Kimble by Jennifer Haigh, Some Assembly Required by Anne Lamott, Quiet by Susan Cain.

We went to a beach an hour north of Boston that is rapidly becoming a sacred place for our family.  On a cold, clear late-April day we wandered on the low tide sand.  It was magic.

I wanted her to see that the only life worth living is a life full of love; that loss is always part of the equation; that love and loss conjoined are the best opportunity we get to live fully, to be our strongest, our most compassionate, our most graceful selves.
-Pam Houston

    I wanted to tell you that I really like this month-by-month summary. It’s something I want to do myself. Do you look back in December to write them all, or do you take notes as you go?

    Love that blue sky!

    Pam has been my writing instructor/mentor/friend for 11 years and I know she’d be thrilled to see her quote used this way. She’ll be in Minneapolis for her paperback tour February 5th, so maybe we could meet there????
