A Glorious Freedom by Lisa Congdon
I must admit, so far I have only read the first essay in this book. It’s by Caroline Paul and it’s about how at age 50, she taught herself how to surf. When reading this chapter, I was about to embark on SCUBA lessons. I was a little nervous. But seeing Caroline’s courage and hearing her story solidified a courage in me. Ideally I would read the whole book and get more inspiration, right? But sometimes a class or a book or a lecture gives us just one tiny spark that ignites a massive change.
