Radio worth listening to

Mary Hynes is the host of CBC's Tapestry.  The episode on November 26th was wonderful ... a story about procrastination, one about empathy and one about meditation.  I'm sharing the link to the show here for anyone who would like to listen to thought provoking, intelligent discussions.

I have a new favourite book ...


It's a great book about names, and shoes that don't fit, and bullies, and being true to yourself, and family dynamics ... 
It's a well earned nomination for the Forest of Reading, Silver Birch Express, 2018.
