All the Rage

I have been hearing about the amazing Kelly Corrigan for months now. My mom keeps telling me to get her book The Middle Place. Someone said she was featured in the Oprah mag. Her name has come up in many emails and conversations in the past few weeks and today I found her on youtube via a facebook link by the insightful and ever delightful Kyran Pittman. Thank you Kyran.

I figured the click of my mouse was the least I could do to finally demystify this Kelly Corrigan of which everyone is raving about.

Well, get out your tissue boxes my friends and see for yourself why Kelly is all the rage.



And yes Mom, you were right and I will run out and get her book today. I promise.

Wow! First, I'm in that 'middle' area right now, being the adult of the family; 2nd, I just got this book TODAY but haven't read it yet. I'm saving that for tonight when everyone is in bed and 3rd, I read this post. Karma baby, karma. What will be, will be. Face it: women rock. We need eachother and I'm so glad for all of us women!

Hi Tracey,

What a beautiful way to "meet" you. This video is amazing. My tears are flowing and my heart is warm.

This video holds such truth. We women are truly gifts to one another. We are part of a beautiful sisterhood.

Blessings

Tracy - I posted this video last month, after it left me weepy and stunned at how one woman could say it so well for all of us. I just got her book yesterday, and am on my way to pour a glass of merlot and begin reading. Here's to friends, online and off.
