"Why Not Do What You Love?"

I thought I'd share this blurb about a book written by Martha Johnson, a great elder friend of mine I met while working as community tv studio mgr in South Hadley MA. I'm quoted in her book and used as an example of someone who is doing what they love... and I guess that's true, come to think of it:)

from Hampshire Gazette, 2/24/10

"Why Not Do What You Love?"
Martha Johnson
Pearl Meadow Press, South Hadley

In her introduction, Martha Johnson takes note of the fact that entering her 70th year "has definitely caught my attention." Aware that her time on this earth is finite - a reality, she admits, that eluded her in her youth - Johnson writes that she has become increasingly focused on the question mortality raises: "How then will I live for as long as I am here?"

Written for people of any age, Johnson's book is her own effort to help others answer that question, to guide them through questions and reflections that might help them discover what they truly want to do. She has included anecdotes and stories from people she interviewed, many of whom live in this area.

Johnson will have a reading at the Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley on March 16 at 7 p.m.
