Your Story Hour! Save 25% off the retail price until next Friday. There’s nothing better than listening to their dramatic Bible retelling, or stories about the great Christian men and women of the faith; and what better dual-purpose than also keeping everyone entertained in the car or while dinner’s on the stove?
You might also want to check out this week’s article: Ten Tips for Taming Chaos. I don’t think I know anyone who couldn’t be helped by her words, and her modern-day proverbs & analogies really illustrated her points well. Now I’m all inspired to tackle some projects this weekend!
Did anyone else catch PBS’ American Master’s special on Louisa May Alcott? The in-character, direct-to-camera acting caught me slightly off guard—it just took a bit of getting used to. However, the more traditional “documentary” animation, music, and voice-overs, I thought were fantastic. And now I know I have to read more Alcott, only ever having read Little Women once!
A few interesting facts learned:
*She lived on the same street as Thoreau and Emerson, and down the street from Hawthorne—and they even were only able to buy their house with Emerson’s monetary help.
*She wrote voraciously, but primarily for the money (employing a pseudonym for her more “popular”-type novels), since her philosophizing father, Bronson Alcott, was apparently not so good at gainful employment.
*She could have really died from Lupus, despite her faulting the mercury-laden “medicine” they gave her while she was serving as a nurse during the Civil War.
