A few years ago I had the crazy idea to do Ray Bradbury’s challenge, which is to read a story, a poem, and an essay every day for 1000 days. It was fun and I learned a lot while it lasted, but I found I couldn’t continue when I took on the role of my mother’s carer. She died the following year, and I had no energy for anything for a time. I’m back on my feet now, however, so I’m starting again. You can follow me by clicking on this link.
