I guess my experience with the readers I know is different. But we're no elite group, that's for sure. 🙂

"Most" is too strong a descriptor, no?

I have favorites I revisit too. But not so much for comfort as for better comprehension or pleasure.

What turns me off a book almost immediately is when a reviewer describes it as an easy/breezy/effortless read. As a reader, I want books that make me feel challenged, discomfited, rattled, bruised, enervated, energized, elevated, roused, gladdened, and a lot more. Don't you?

Know that you are not betraying your grief by feeling joy. You don’t owe it to your grief to set everything else aside in order to honor it. Your grief never asked for that. Find pleasure when and where you can. Keep moving.

Think back to the person you were five, ten, twenty years ago—the person who could not have imagined the life you have now, the path you’ve made for yourself, the obstacles you've pushed past. That person would be proud of you. Look around you: it is enough. Keep moving.

Know that every person you encounter today is carrying something awkward and heavy—some invisible burden whose shape and size you can’t know. What you say or do might give them some of the strength they need to keep going. Be kind. Keep moving.

If you are being gentle with yourself during a difficult time, that is not self-pity. You would show compassion to a friend in pain, even a stranger, so why withhold it from yourself? Don’t. Keep moving.

Thanks so much, Rohini. Hope all is well with you and family. Currently back in the US so not on social media much. But hoping to get back to my usual writing routine soon.

If you want to know who you are, pay attention to what you do. Think about what you tend to and what you don’t. If you want to be a writer, then write. If you want to be a good friend or partner or parent, then show up, listen, love. Yes, love is a verb, so do it. Keep moving.

Find a reason to say yes today. Then repeat, repeat, repeat. What would happen if you lived a month of yes? A year of yes? It’s not about doing more or overextending yourself; it’s about getting out of your own way. Keep moving.
