What were the best books you read this year?   Or the best movie you saw?  

Hardscrabble Road by George Weinstein

The Soul by Adin Steinsaltz

The Subtle Art of not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson

Because there was lots of time for looking inward, what is one big personal lesson you learned this past year?

Things can change very, very quickly. Nothing is a given. I learned how much I took for granted. It was a huge wake-up call.

Do you think Covid has strengthened or weakened societal bonds?

I think it has strengthened societal bonds. Well, for most of us. We’ve learned, I hope, the necessary skills of sticking together and having one another’s backs. Zoom was a real lifesaver. If not for that, it would’ve been even more isolating.

  1. Thanks Susan for Sharing Your World! Some interesting titles in your ‘read’ list! This past year has been challenging and I hope that people in general learned a little something about change and cause and effect, but I suspect many did not. Happy New Year and may your week be wonderful!
