airplane fiction reading...

I should have been reading my homework... but.... easy read and enjoyable. Good airplane/airport pick.

When their men go off to war, Babe, Millie, and Grace, three childhood friends in Massachusetts, live on letters, and in dread of telegrams that can bring only bad news. But as the war drags on, and when peace breaks out, they experience changes that move them in directions they never dreamed possible. The women lose their innocence, struggle to raise their children, and find meaning and love in unexpected places.
And as they change, so does America—from a country in which people know their place in the social hierarchy to a world in which women’s rights, the Civil Rights movement, and technological innovations present new possibilities and uncertainties.
Yet Babe, Millie, and Grace remain bonded by their past, even as their children grow up and away and a new society rises from the ashes of the war.
A story of war, loss, and the scars they leave, Next To Love depicts the enduring power of love and friendship, and illuminates a transformational moment in American history.

rope yoga

Seriously. amazing.
My birthday treat. I have been eyeing this studio and made time during my trip to go.
It was very powerful and focused on upper body strength. I still love hot, but hoping I can find something in CO like this.

I feel as if I need or should be doing something. Not sure what but something.
I feel like I barely scratch the surface.
Then I read a book like the The Thirdwave and I know I am only scratching.
The Thirdwave Book Site
I think I am read to jump and never look back but I know I feel like I cannot right now. But really I can.

strange -

I just finished readng Love Shrinks over the weekend. It is a memoir of a marriage counselor and self-help author that writes about her own failed marriage. I read it with my eyes wide open - very interesting and disturbing.
