Connection Books!

I can't help myself- I have to blog about "My Stroke of Insight" by Jill Bolte Taylor.  I am so glad I read this book- it provided many "ah-has" and lessons. I also was amazed by this woman's courage and strength. Her recovery is inspiring and her knowledge fascinating.  Right brain, left brain has always intrigued me- this book put it in simple terms that apply to my life right now.  It is always exciting when you read a book and it accompanies your own life in someway. This happens a good bit for me and I'm grateful.  The best news is the book experience will be even greater once book club discusses it...hmmm I need to understand the parts of brain that make that so for me....

I do know that the right side of my brain is happy this weekend. It is taking in all the fun and festivity, tradition and celebration the 4th of July in central Ohio brings!  It is also my birthday weekend and that right brain helps me embrace and enjoy all that means!  I just picked up Jenny's Ice Cream at River road coffee- big smiles!!  Last year I baked my own cake- this year I bring my own ice cream!!  My left brain likes to try and take over with re-thinking and over scheduling, the packing for the kids (YEAH JOE for taking that one) being annoyed with traffic patterns, etc.....the good news is I find balance and embrace the moment thanks to all the goodness around me on Newark-Granville road.
