While there are certainly a lot of things that I could be doing at the moment, I thought I would take a little break and write a blog post 4 months (gasp!) after my last post.
Grandparents are on my mind lately. I feel so fortunate to have such exemplary role models for living life fully and well. My Grandfather that passed away when I was in high school was known for enjoying his “reading matter.” At one time, he carried a red bag with him that as I recall generally included a newspaper, the Atlantic, but I am not sure what else.
He carried this bag with him and when he was waiting, he would sit and read. There is something about reading an actual newspaper, magazine or book in this age of technology overload.
Currently, I subscribe to the Wall Street Journal, yup that is right, I get a paper delivered to my doorstep 6 days a week. I love that it is only 6 days a week as it is nice to have a day off once a week. I also converted most of my digital magazine subscriptions back to paper. Paper is not ruined if it takes a dip in the bath.
My Kindle now only comes out when I travel for long periods of time as a real book just feels better. I have been enjoying reading books the I purchase at Changing Hands Bookstore (a fave find since moving to Phoenix last year) and checking out books from the gorgeous Burton Barr Central Library.
I have been looking for a book club to join since moving to Phoenix. While Changing Hands Phoenix will eventually host some book clubs, I was excited to learn that Burton Barr has a book club.
And since I am starting up a new business, Be Buffum, I was also excited to learn that Burton Barr offers some training for new businesses thru Hive. While I have already navigated some of the steps to starting my business on my own, it is certainly great to know that there are resources in Phoenix for start-up businesses.
