I want to thank everyone who has read this blog over the years.
Thank you for buying Left of the Dial or for reading the memoir excerpts here if you didn’t buy the book.
I’m trying to line up a featured reader gig for the Italian American Writers Association (IAWA) in May. I will tell everyone the information about this if I’m able to get the green light to do this.
2016 is the 25th anniversary of IAWA.
Everyone should take pride in their heritage if you ask me. A few bad apples shouldn’t spoil it for everyone else in this ethnicity.
I once saw a young teen wear a hoodie with bold letters proclaiming: “Proud to be Muslim.” I would like to have a tee shirt that proclaims: “Proud to be Italian.”
You don’t have to be Italian. You can have a different ethnicity. Either way taking pride in where you come from matters if you ask me.
A lot of the customs have gotten lost in translation. I say there’s a beauty in keeping traditions alive.
I wrote years ago at HealthCentral about the recovery strategy of establishing a tradition. I’ll talk about this in detail on Thursday.
Enjoy your day.
