I read Big Magic today in one go. I was not sure what to expect, as I was not a fan of Eat, Pray, Love (I know! Hold the stones and pitchforks! It was popular, but it was not for me). I can honestly that I loved Big Magic exactly as much as I did not love Eat, Pray, Love. It was beautiful. Elizabeth Gilbert writes so vividly about the capriciousness and vitality of creativity and she is so incredibly sincere and, let’s face it, magical in her writing that it is easy to imagine that one has been visited by the Muses oneself. Her story of Ann Patchett is at once awesome and incredible. I can not recommend this highly enough.

Esther Perel takes on tough questions, grappling with the obstacles and anxieties that arise when our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion. She invites us to explore the paradoxical union of domesticity and sexual desire, and explains what it takes to bring lust home.

I absolutely loved this audiobook. The insight into working Eros into the domestic is one I have never heard before. I have put some of these suggestions into how I communicate with my spouse and have found them to be very valid and validating.

"True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are." Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives - experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization.

Thank you, Brené Brown. Once again, you have written my heart and my mind. I adored and have already begun to practice the message in Dr Brown’s book.
