Başka bir çocukluk elyafı. Judy Blume kitaplarını okurken büyüdüm ve bu da bir başka komik, ilgi çekici yaş hikayesi. 40'lı yıllarda yaşayan Yahudi bir kız, Hitler'in hayatta ve Miami Beach'te iyi olduğunu düşünüyor.
Başka bir şans daha veriyorum. MFA'sını bitirdikten ve garson olarak uzun bir süre kalmak zorunda kaldıktan sonra, Ann Patchett, garson sınavında mükemmel bir puan almak için TGI Fridays WOW ödülünü aldı, bana yeni bir umut verdi.
I skimmed through this while on vacation last week. Our house has been on a de-clutter kick for over a year now, and I am a big believer in the idea that more stuff means more chaos! We are finding it very liberating to let go of the STUFF we just don't need. So, I agreed with her premise, and I also liked her plan to let go of both material and mental clutter (some of her thought here made a lot of sense to me). But, the whole thing was filled with stories of things she or other people let go of--and I found it very tiresome and the ideas unoriginal. I also thought some of her advice was contradictory and not very practical. For example, she tells you that you don't have to get rid of your whole wardrobe at once because of the expense of replacing it (this is if your clothes are not representing who you want to be), but that you should let go of your fears and negative ideas, quit your undesirable or fulfilling job before finding a new one, and trust that it will work out (as a family that has lived on unemployment checks before, I do not advise this plan). I guess it wasn't entirely what I expected--more "self help" and therapy in a book and less about how materialism affects our lives and what we can do to change the dominant perspective that stuff makes us happy.
