Why Was I Put On This Earth?

"People ask every day, ‘Why was I put on earth?’ As if there is perhaps one reason. The truth is there are too many reasons to count, and each reason and each soul connects to every other."
- from The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman

Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry.

On the day after her 80th birthday, some pure gold Gloria Steinem from ten years ago:

"Remember becoming the men we wanted — some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry? Well, we figured out that not enough men are becoming the women they wanted to marry. And that is a next part of the revolution, right? We’ll always have two jobs until all the work of the home and the rewards of the home and child rearing are equally shared by women and men. Like yes, raising daughters more like our sons ...

Music is my savior
