Read Well ~ Live Well: Antigone


"Your wisdom appealed to one world ~ mine, another."
                                                                                                              ~ Antigone (Sophocles)

I'll admit it. When Edie named Antigone as the next book for her Read Well ~ Live Well Book Club, my heart was stone cold sober. Sophocles? My friends are all swooning over Gone Girl and Killing Kennedy. Sophocles? 

Come join me over at Edie's online library. It's a delicious slice of heaven. And there's a free bookmark waiting for you.

Oh, and because it is a super-short play, you'll still have plenty of time to read Gone Girl (loved the first 200 pages, the rest was pretty much meh).

Vote


In 1776, "we the people" could vote, as long as "we" were white men that owned land. If you were a white man that owned land, but were Jewish, Catholic, or Quaker ~ so sorry, no votey for you. Check back with us in about seventy-five years. If you were non-white, you had to wait until the 1870's. Women had to wait until the 1920's. Today, if you are 18, you only have to wait about 20 minutes in line.

I'm taking my children with me to vote. Then we're walking to Ben and Jerry's for some ice cream. And picking up this book from the library. Tonight's dinner will include a few brewskis, compliments of Sam Adams. We'll watch election coverage while playing chess and finishing up homework. 

Our vote matters ~ at the polls, and through the peeps of our children. It is counted by ballots, and the boys and girls who want to be just like us. See you at the polls.
