Self-Reliance and Other Essays | Ralph Waldo Emerson

Pickpick

Finally, at the very end of the year, after bailing several books, I found an author and essayist that I loved. 2022 has to be a better year than this one was, regarding reading and most everything else for me. I love and agree with Emerson‘s perspective and look forward to studying his other works.

Billed as a graphic novel about exercise (Bechdel herself refers to this as “the fitness book”) but this is so much more than that. Best known for Fun Home, the author turns her focus to her own life, decade by decade, chronicling her relationships, career, moves, and even path to enlightenment. All of this is framed by her changing interests in physical activity, Margaret Fuller, Jack Kerouac, and so much more. I can‘t do this work justice. Epic.

Todays #festivephotochallenge is family time, this is the Christmas Eve Jolabakoflod celebration. I overheard my youngest say it was the best gift to my sister, and her saying that is truly the best gift! 🎄🎁 #wintergames

It‘s Moby-Dick 🐳 season for me. My morning ritual involves reading my chapters and taking notes to discuss with my Honors 11 students. I am enjoying this process more now that it is my second year reading the novel. #teachersoflitsy #transcendentalism #whaling #americanliterature #annotations

I have posted a few times of my love for graphic memoirs. One of the most recent that I have read is Bechdel's latest. Her work is a blend between fitness memoir, professional autobiography, metaphysical adventure & portrait of a fraught #family relationship. I have had a couple of people ask why I love graphic memoirs so much & it dawns on me that some of the more memorable family portraits that I have read have been in this format. I can👇

vivastory add that to the several other reasons for enjoying graphic memoirs. #GratefulHarvest @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @eggs 2mo

Bookzombie I loved Fun Home, but could not get into the one I tagged. Maybe I should give it another try. 2mo
Bookzombie I haven‘t seen the show, but also love the Broadway recording. 💗 Ring of Keys 🎶 2mo
vivastory @Bookzombie Rings of Keys is one of my faves. I was listening to it earlier today. I *almost* picked up Are You My Mother when I stopped by the library today. I should just read FH first 2mo
