Out of the blue this week I have been gifted two books by lovely friends. Both books look fascinating and are on topics close to my heart – Buenos Aires and French women. Thank you Libby and Suad. The only difficult thing is to decide which one shall I read first.
TED is brilliant. I love good presenters and odd topics and fifteen minute talks. Last night I watched Mandy Len Catron talk about the language we use to describe love. We liken love to madness or combat, and consider it something that happens to us. She challenges that notion, presenting a different perspective that favours choice and agency, and is really quite hopeful. If you’d rather read, try her article in the New York Times.
