RITUAL: Read "The Faraway Nearby" by Rebecca Solnit

Thank you to the dear friend who knowingly slipped me this new release with a "look-no-further" tap and nod.

I highly recommend spending some time with Rebecca Solnit through her memoir, as she unfolds the experience of loosing her mother through bitterness in life, Alzheimer’s  and eventually death.

Here's a review that nailed it, in case you need any more convincing. 

 

Stories are compasses and architecture; we navigate by them, we build our sanctuaries and prisons out of them, and to be without a story is to be lost in the vastness of a world that spreads in all directions like arctic tundra or sea ice.
