Kelly Corrigan: Words on Women and Strength

Currently, I'm reading 'The Middle Place' by Kelly Corrigan.  It has been an enjoyable, provoking read, a balance between heartache and cheerleading.  I relate to her story as a daughter and mother, and wait on her words to learn how cancer has changed her innermost and to see what I can take and apply to my own story.


I find myself wanting to stand applaud the women whose work I've read, who are sharing their stories, and who have unearthed the lessons within their living. 

Life is all about our stories. 
The cause and affect; the lessons.

While searching for a 'Middle Place' book cover photo to put on my blog, I came across some essay reading by Kelly Corrigan.  And all over again, I am touched by her candidness; her stories. 
I'm so happy to have found one more female writer to inspire me in my own story-telling.

You can hear her tell about 'The Middle Place' here.

I love this essay, Transcending: Words on Women and Strength.



Enjoy your Friday!
Cassie

I'm happy you each have enjoyed this. Have a great week!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
