December’s poem is by Emily Dickinson. Emily Dickinson was so clever. She wrote an entire poem about snow without ever mentioning the word “snow.” Grab your cup of tea and enjoy reading this winter poem. (PS. (October and November poems here.)
When I think of fall, I think of detectives, locomotives and old-timey London. (Yes, I really do think of all of those things during the fall months. I have an overactive imagination that never rests.)
For me, fall is for fresh starts. This book could kick-start you in getting organized, whether it’s that one desk drawer or the hall closet. My advice? Start small. Don’t tackle the entire apartment. You might run out of steam and give up completely. But I really do think it’s the most incredible feeling to declutter a little and organize something that needs organizing.
Tan France’s memoir is funny and sweet. It’s also brutally honest and heartwarming. It can’t be easy growing up as a brown Muslim boy in a predominantly white neighborhood in the UK. He was beaten up a lot and had to hide his true self from his strict Muslim family. But somehow he got through it all, stayed true to himself, became uber successful and ended up happy and in love in Utah, USA. And he managed to write about it in a funny and heartwarming way in this memoir.
Your turn! Which books would you recommend for some cozy fall reading?
