Moving On

September 25, 2017 – “Girls you’ve gotta know when it’s time to turn the page.”

That line from Tori Amos’ “From the Choirgirl Hotel” is most likely about moving on with your life, but moving on with anything, even to a new home, can be traumatic and fulfilling. You find yourself in a new space and even though you’re surrounded by your own familiar possessions, everything feels different.

Today, I am moving into a new home. I’m happy with the decision, but I know I’ll miss my old home for a bit, in the same manner that while I love Citizens’ Bank Park, the newer home of the Philadelphia Phillies, there are aspects of their old home, the infamous Vet’s Stadium that I miss, too. But shaking things up and starting from scratch is healthy and one of the upsides of moving.

I spent the last several weeks packing up my belongings (which is why there wasn’t a blog post last week), the movers arrive at 9 a.m. and I’ll be on my way.

Tune on Thursday, when I’ll post my photo of the week, and again on Monday, when I’ll hopefully have something new to say.

Read a Classic Novel in Less Than a Minute

September 11, 2017 — Ours is a fast-paced world where everyone wants instant results.

If you’re into classic literature and the old-fashioned way of reading by the fire slows you down too much, here’s something that will help you finish a story faster than the Evelyn Wood Speed Reading course.

A site appropriately named Book-a-Minute offers ultra-condensed versions of classic novels, bedtime stories and science fiction stories that you can read — not by fire light, but at lightning fast speed.

My favorite … The Collected Works of Virginia Woolf.

Better not let the kids know about this one. Teachers would probably hate it more than Cliff Notes.
