I am Rebecca Solnit's newest fanboy. Her dissection of the either/or, black/white, this/that mentality that plagues so many of us so much of the time begs that it be read--often and repeatedly like a great hymnal. Solnit helps me keep hope in my heart as we face an uncertain future. She reminds us that we become our best selves when crises or adversity challenge us, and that we must not lose hope and retreat from seemingly unwinnable battles. She helps remind me of what my wife always says, just do the next right thing. Required reading!
