Can't We Talk about Something More Pleasant?: A Memoir by Roz Chast
Can't We Talk about Something More Pleasant?: A Memoir

Karen Sampson, January 11, 2015

I look forward to reading this very much! I took care of my elderly, ailing, and dementia suffering parents for a few years and understand how traumatic, yet life enhancing the experience can be. Depression, anger, exhaustion, but also gratitude that I was able to be there for them were part of my experience. Finally having to have both admitted to homes where they could receive better care than I ultimately could provide was painful and I still feel some guilt, but I know it was for the best for them and for me. I have already told my son to place me somewhere if I reach a point where I am helpless and have dementia, and not to feel guilty...I have given him pre-permission:-)!

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Karen Sampson, February 8, 2014

I was immediately taken with this book as I am one of those introverts for whom the world seems too full of chatter. Wonderful discussion about the contributions that introverts give, and have given in the past, to our evolution and societal structure. Highly recommend!
