Eating Disorder: A Study in Grief

“Recovery is a lifestyle. You have to change how you see the world and how you see yourself.” ~ The Shadows We Hide by Allen Eskens If you had the chance to read my last post, Back To Therapy, you know my Eating Disorder has reared her ugly head again. I was naïve to think […]

Luxurious Writing Takes Me To Russia

This book is simply a joy to read. Towles writes like silk sheets -- you just want to hunker down, surround yourself in his words and in the Count's world. This is a book that should be read out-loud. His writing is lyrical and his themes transcendent. For example ... "But then, as every child […]
