From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?

Slow Books

     I absolutely adore this idea! A slow book movement! Wouldn't it be wonderful if we all started celebrating TV-less Monday, just like Meatless Monday. Just as it is too hard for most of us to give up meat everyday, it is simple and easy to get behind giving it up one day a week, and still so much good can come from it. Let's do it!
