Fresh Starts

December 6th, 2014



I have a few durable heroes and role models in my life, and Joan Didion has never moved off the list. I’ve had numerous copies of her book of essays, SLOUCHING TOWARDS BETHLEHEM, all of which I’ve lost through the years. After reading this article in Huffington Post, I forwarded it to my goddaughter who’s an aspiring writer and then ordered yet another copy of the book for myself. I’ll start the year out by re-reading the essay ON KEEPING A NOTEBOOK and hope it inspires me to make a fresh start with my writing. What will you do to make a fresh start in the coming year?

    I hope to find this in my local book store where I scored beautiful slender floral notebooks that remind me of a paperback moleskin. Joan Didion is phenomenon and her writing feels like someone sitting with you for a long conversation that could last until the early light of morning.
