#1linerWeds. 9/26/18

Time for #1linerWeds.  Linda shared pics of squirrel prints.  Squirrels are evil but I will save my squirrel post for another day as I try to keep my streak alive 🙂

Here’s my #1liner for today.

At the time, I was in the cruddiest place a journalist can be – between stories and out of ideas … I was looking for an assignment to get myself out of the office for a day ~ Monica Hesse

Boy did she find an assignment!! Turned into the book Love, Arson, and Life in a Vanishing Land: American Fire.  I will write my review of her book later.  I picked this one line because it reminded me that I once had dreams of being a reporter.

Ah to be young again!  To see the world as my oyster.  To believe that I have unlimited choices.

As always, more to come.

  1. You never know what the future holds. I took journalism in college with thoughts of being a reporter, too. A few years ago, I got to write for a small local on-line publication about Faith and Values. It didn’t pay anything and was funded by a grant connected to Religion News Service which fosters diversity. The grant ended, but for almost a year, I was a reporter. I had almost forgotten that!
