nicolenevermore I'm on my second read through Shannon Able's book. The first time I went through it quickly and now I'm taking my time, reading each section and, even if the topic doesn't apply to me directly, trying to really soak up the lessons she writes about. Chapter 8 is an especially relevant bit for where I am in life right now. I'd love to know your thoughts when you've gotten to it!
Sarah: So, he’s “Tim” now — not “le beau.” Why the change? Whatever the reason, I like it — everyone knows who he is, so he deserves to be called by his name. “Le beau” always seemed like you were trying to hide his identity (best case) or only allow him an identity as a function of his relationship to you (worst case). Long live Tim! RIP le beau!
