Kate Christensen
Nostalgia is a powerful drug. Under its influence, ordinary songs take on dimensions and powers, like emotional superheroes.
Kate Christensen
I love the perspective afforded by having lived five decades, a degree of bemused and muted calm, a relief from the insistent demands of a turbulent ego and rampant ambition. I'd love to stay here forever. But something tells me that 50 is a sunny idyll, a temporary state of grace, a golden afternoon.
Kate Christensen
Ham is undoubtedly one of the most universally beloved of meats, at least in those parts of the world where it's not prohibited.
Kate Christensen
