I just glanced at the books that are crowding my desk these days. It struck me what a funny assortment it is. What do they have in common? They are reference materials for the book on mothers and sons. Beyond that though, what would General Douglas MacArthur have made of Kanye West? Or Harry Truman, who once wrote to his mother that she wasn't going to much like the speech he would deliver to the NAACP, make of Barrack Obama's memoirs?
The following pile of is stacked up: "Raising Kanye: Life Lessons From The Mother Of A Hip-Hop Superstar" by Donda West, "Dreams of My Father," by Barrack Obama, "My Life," by Bill Clinton, "First Mothers," by Bonnie Angelo, "Truman," by David McCullough, "Reminiscences," by General Douglas MacArthur, "The Age of Empathy: Nature's Lessons For a Kinder Society," by Frans de Waal, and "Mothers [and] Sons In Their Own Words," a book of photography by Mariana Cook.
As you can see, I'm steeped in my topic, but I better soon get inspiration from that last author's name. Cook I must. Today I'm going to get a jump on the cranberry sauce.
