December Book Report

December 2021, NYC
I finished 16 books last month.

A quote from this month's reading:

"The pain does grow less acute, but the insidious palace lie that we will get over crushing losses means that our emotional GPS can never find true north, as it is based on maps that no longer mention the most important places we have been to."                   --Stitches by Anne Lamott (p. 40)

Here is my progress toward various goals and challenges:

"Nothing is harder to recapture than the good parts of a failed marriage."
