Reading everything I can get my hands on by Rebecca Solnit. Unbelievable to me that I am only now discovering her wonderful essays, many focused on the San Francisco Bay Area and California in general, many include historical references and make connections that feel more than true, they feel like they come out of my own blood. Every piece I read teaches me something about using your brain, dreaming big and having no fear when engaging the imagination with the intellect. It's been a long while since I've been excited about reading. Yippee!
