"I believe that there are moments in everyone's lives where a door flings open, and if you're terrified of what's on the other side, you must walk through it." Nia Vardalos
An article in Sunday's New York Times reminded me once again of the importance of girlfriends. In case you missed it, I have included the link here http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/28/opinion/sunday/what-women-find-in-friends-that-they-may-not-get-from-love.html?_r=0
A friend sent me the link to an article published in the New York Times in early August with the title "The Opt Out Generation Wants Back In." When friends send me articles, I usually read them and tweet about them (if I am inspired to do so), despite the fact, I am well aware many of you are not on twitter. In this case, I kept thinking about the article and thought it offered a perspective we don't hear very often, so I am doing things the old fashioned way...I am blogging about it to share the link with you....in the hopes, more of you will read it. I warn you this article is a long one!! Regardless, I believe it ...
George Saunders is a New York times bestselling American writer of short stories, essays, novellas and children's books. He delivered the convocation speech at Syracuse University for the class of 2013 which was published in its entirety in the New York Times on July 31, 2013. They felt the entire speech was well worth reading and I agree.
