Which is one of my favorites. Narnia is one. But that's long. So i'm gonna go with renewables. It kind of covers everyone. Yeah i like that. I like to.

"So i am working on i do. I am working on a new devotional. I can't say the title quite yet but other another devotional similar to the anna green gables. Devotional Where i go through a classic book chapter by chapter taking out those like faith lessons that we can. We can glean so the way i set up. The an book is so that each chapter of the book has an accompanying chapter in the devotional book. So you could essentially read and agreed gables in reach after one and then re chapter one of the devotional book. And i take just one moment or one quote from the book that is kind of the focal point of that of that chapter in. We've been scripture in. We've in a time of prayer and personal reflection. So i'm doing that now with another a classic book that i think people will love. I hope will love So another one of those books that you kind of grow up with and you just love as a child and you love even more as an adult at speed official. So what is the lord talking to you about lately as such a good question I really you know he's really been speaking to me. A lot about hope Just realizing that going through. Twenty twenty i know for all of us had a lot of a lot of Ups and downs a lot of unsettled. Things there's a lot of unknowns in a lot of our lives but i speaking for myself Personally just have so many unknowns. And i think it's hard sometimes when we can't get look forward and plan things we can't we don't know what's coming next and i think it's easy to get discouraged sometimes and without you know we're not we're trying to stay encourage but you know sometimes you just get kinda low spirits going okay. I don't know what's happening next month. I if i can't. I ran ahead. I have no idea. We'll be doing anything you know for summer planning or any of that. It's kind of an interesting season. And then just personally you know with my family. We've had some of our own changes. That happened this last year. And there's a lot that's up in up in the air and every time my husband and i sit down and chat and pray together we always come back to. We always say now as like the dreaded four letter word wait yup. it's like everywhere we turn. The answer is wait. It's not yes it's not. No it's wait. And so in the waiting i think the lord is just showing me one that my hope is in him alone and just to keep my eyes focused on him. You know that. Grow the narrow gate to stay on that narrow path. Let him hedge me in with his love his protection his word his encouragement Digging in with my personal time in in the word and then also just really the importance of having fellowship during this time you know some of us maybe aren't able to see friends or go to church as much as usual. I'm just noticing the lord is showing me. I need you to go wherever you can go and in whatever way you can get some fellowship it is part of our made you think of in acts when the disciples are meeting meeting together..

Growing Up In Style: "Patterns of the Past" by Susan Choi

"I'm here to introduce a series of original essays titled growing up in style writers on discovering fashion in america in this one the novelist susan choi author of the national book award winning novel trust. Exercises writes about her love of fabric patterns as a child in south bend indiana here susan reading her essay patterns of the past. I hope you enjoy. Historians of fashion seem to agree that by the time i was born in nineteen sixty nine. The son was already setting on the golden age of sewing. But there were few signs of this decline where i was growing up in south. Bend indiana my mother like so many mothers owned a sewing machine and knew how to use it how this come to be. I asked her recently. She gave a verbal shots over the phone from houston where she lives. Now if you read the directions and follow the pattern it would come out all right. She recalled she didn't even remember perhaps because they were as ordinary to her as grocery shopping. Our trips to the fabric store. Oh the fabric store. Even now decades later when google those words and look at the photos my heart thumps with desire to be clear. These are not photos. A fabric for sale online but photos of the interiors of actual physical places where one goes to touch bolts of fabric cards of rick rack buttons buttoned to a stiff cardboard backing or tumbling loose in a jar dispenser displays of threat arranged by color the spools curved surfaces gleaming like candy and every kind of beautiful ribbon in every color and texture and pattern the fabric store. Unlike the grocery store made me hungry the for. What exactly wasn't clear at the time. It was something much larger and much less defined than the outfits. My mother would make me from the items. We chose the fabrics and notions and trim but the outfits i loved with my whole heart and remember as clearly as if they still hung in my closet. The ruffled pinafore made from a white on white print of tiny flowers trimmed with red rick rack and finished with the application juicy. Strawberries on the bib. The shirtdress of multicolored cotton printed with patterns resemble embroidery the truly glamorous halter dress with a triple tiered skirt of pastel. Blue pastel pink. Pastel yellow says my mother now in her eighties on the other end of the phone. I lovingly describe her creations. She is impressed. I remember so while she has zero memory of sowing the any of these things though she does remember making herself address with extremely big sleeves. They were in style that year. She says she wore it a few times and decided the sleeves looked so stupid that she tore them off and wore. The dress sleeveless the fact that unlike me my mother is white exceedingly pale small boned blue eyed and with the cheekbones of film star both oppressed me throughout my childhood. And lay somehow outside of thought even to articulate it now feels uncomfortable but the facts were and remain that my pale blue eyed mother never matched my black haired brown eyed dark skinned self always far darker as a child than i ever get now because i was outside all summer. In an era before sunscreen in elementary school in indiana. I was cast as the lone indian in the thanksgiving play more. Generally i was constantly looked at especially or at least so it seemed to me when standing next to my mother. We didn't match. I harbored a fantasy fearful half escapist that i would turn out who've been adopted from some faraway land. Even my father who really was from a faraway land only explained my appearance without removing. My anomalous miss. He was to novelists himself ends that hunger. I felt at the fabric store. Larger than any one outfit could satisfy for the choosing of the fabric and the notions and the trim was always secondary to the choice of the pattern and the choice of the pattern was never i understand. Now about the pattern it south. It was about the girls the winsome the willowy and the overwhelmingly with token exceptions white girls who modeled the pinafores and shirt dresses and halters the tiered skirts and even the full body. Pajama like halloween costumes. On the outside of the rectangle envelopes housing the patterns. Remember those remember how they were often filed in boxes so that your fingers walked through them as they would later walk through. Lp's at the record store. When i think of patterns my mind says butterick. And i bet that the majority of the close my mother made me were from patterns put out not by simplicity or mccall's but by the butterick company which also produced vogue patterns having licensed the name from conde nast bruising those patterns of my past online where especially at sea they abound as if the golden age of sewing never ended. I have to wonder if i always chose butterick patterns on the strength of the package illustrations alone. The simplicity girls are oddly wooden and slightly mis proportioned the mccalls girls look like cartoons but the butterick girls still quicken my heart. I recognize my secret childhood. Self that lanky limb d- flush cheeked auburn-haired spirited white girl. I was deluded enough to imagine. I might be twin sister to anne of green gables. No less than two miniature area clock recognizing that hopeless longing to be entirely unlike myself delicately white as affirmed by one hundred percent of my world is a part of moving past it and perhaps even a part of reclaiming those buttons and bows those bullets at every possible fabric delicious all on their own after concluding online photos that it might well be the store of my childhood. I called stitch in time in south bend but it had only opened in nineteen ninety. Three there was a fabric store back then an ireland road by the old scottsdale mall. The woman who answered stitch in times phone told me. When i explained where i lived fashion fabrics that turned out had opened in nineteen seventy one just in time for my first toddler outfits and closed just under two decades later having withstood. Even the machine made onslaught of gloria vanderbilt. I know about that story. Because i worked there. The stitch in time woman went on. But before i could exclaim that maybe she'd helped me choose buttons or ribbons. She politely ended the call. An actual customer having arrived looking. I imagine for the modest but real transformation that a pattern and some fabric can provide.

"Yeah so like last year. Disney did the version of the nutcracker and so I- published the original original nutcracker in the kindle store unfortunately the movie didn't do great so it didn't it sold. But you know it wasn't quite as high as I'd hoped there's a version this year of little women coming Out which is one of our families just favorite works and favorite authors and so there's kind of a high visibility version of that movie with you know really well well known actresses in it. That's coming out this December so if I can get the Christmas collection and that done in time I'd like to release a version of that I might do a collection of Louisa May Alcott but also always just thinking about putting together just a good version of little women just paperback and see see how I do they are so. Let's talk about that production process in the time that goes was into it. So what does that look like from the. I've been through the kindle process a few times in the formatting can get a little wonky. You know there's a little bit of a learning curve to it especially if you're pasting from PDF's and stuff like the town's sounds like it would take me longer than an hour. Put it that way. Sure Yup the vast S. majority of works that you find online of public domain. You don't have to go from a pdf you're typically going from like a text file or an html file Al html for those that don't know is kind of like the language of that used to create websites and it's also kind of behind the scenes of a kindle book basically everything that you see in a kindle book is stored with html since the way that kind of the formatting of the book works so most works that I've wanted to publish I've been able to defined pretty high quality versions of there's always some editing and some proof reading. I mentioned that a lot of these works were created by scanning Old Books and so sometimes you get errors in that but the errors tend to be consistent. Maybe the font in the book made the look like something else like a different set of combinations but it tends to if it's wrong in one place it's probably wrong with that same pattern you know so I do some kind of search and replace I find find common errors and can clean up a lot pretty quickly but you know there are set a lot of really high quality just totally free editions. where it's minimal editing thing and it's really just more about the combination than the presentation okay to doing this in your dumping this all into a word doc on your machine so you can kind of manipulate an edit as needed? Yeah you can build a word. I teach people how to Kinda use headings as a structure within the documents to separate chapters and works and and then when you do your conversion the Amazon's tools will pick up in that structure and kind of give you that built in a table of contents navigation. Oh this isn't something you have to code yourself for. Use Words table of contents. He can say Amazon. Just just do it for me please. Yeah Yeah and so. Those kind of things are helpful. There's some shortcuts shortcuts. Just kinda speed the process along and so and then I tend to use. You can upload to Amazon's kindle system and Kinda use their online proofreading freeing tool but they also have this kindle proof reader that you can install on your local computer and it lets you see year compiled work and kind of tested justice and you can test it on like say okay show me it on like an e ink now show me. Let me see how. It looks on a kindle fire so it's a pretty good testing tool just to make sure you don't have a AAC funny. Formatting issues is that the bottleneck in the process of doing this proofreading editing formatting stage that probably early for most works is where the most time is spent in just getting that formatting right. Make sure there aren't any issues certainly. There's a kind of a selection election process of what I WANNA include. But I think a lot of it is just kind of getting that formatting into something that you get faster at and better as you practice at salmon so if you ever hired that I don't I haven't yet. I had done it as kind of another side business for a while. Like for other people like they would bring me a book they would want to publish and I would format it and give them mckendall file. I've considered kind of outsourcing parts of my process ultimately. I just enjoyed a lot and to me like you know. It's just some of the craft of it and so I enjoy it. I haven't outsourced at yet. Maybe I should but I. I've kind of enjoyed the process of building this fine. I was just curious. I was who is beaten my head against the wall trying to get the formatting right for the progress journal because like all these like blank lines and kind of fill in the blank pages and prompts and it was like the margins. Windsor messed up over here. And I went to fiber and found this book. Formatting pro and it was like the best money that I ever spent and then she sent me a message back when she was like. Oh I like listen to your show. While I'm editing. These I was like Oh this is awesome. Nice you know. It's like kindle depending on the device the formatting can be a little bit basic at times can be a little frustrating and so kind of the simpler the better as far as what the formatting you can use so how about cover ever designed you try and stay true to the original cover of the of the book if you're allowed to do that I've used kind of aspects of old old covers and of existing illustrations at time. So the Beatrix Potter cover. I just used like various illustrations and Kinda put them together into a single cover. I'm I'm far from a graphic designer like true graphic designer. Just make me look bad. I've got enough. It skill and understanding that. I've done my cover design myself in other places. I do think that that was one of the things that helped my Anna Green Gables collection is literally the only financial investment I made for that collection. Was I browse this stock photography website and found like this grey kind of close up of this red haired girl that just looked like Anna Gable. Semaj thought it was like the perfect image I got I pay like seventeen dollars for that image. I've never seen like a lot of money at the time I was like. Oh seventeen box. Okay okay. I'll pay us. It's all speculative I'm not gonNA earn a certain the whole here but it's just a good image ended up working. I was Kinda funny because then this other Anna Gables collection that I had been kind of like trying to compete with breath. They updated their cover like a couple months later and they use like the same image had gone. And so you get those copycat things but I just. I don't know I I kind of tinker around a little bit and just find a design that I like that I think is eye catching at some level so if somebody is going through this uploading process in in KDP Peta Amazon dot. com is where you'll find your kind of self publishing dashboard for this stuff. They're going to be presented with a question that asks us. They want to enroll this book in. Katie p you select which is Amazon's exclusivity program and you mentioned. Ai Syndicate some of these over to apple books like what's your take on. Katie P select as a potential marketing benefit for people interested in this business. So I've published my own book in in the kindle store years ago and used kindle select think it has some value for for your own works. Unfortunately they don't say just they don't allow you to enroll public domain works in kindle. Select so it was not even a question right not a question. It does preserve the ability to do it in multiple platforms and also. There's this concept of price matching where which sometimes sometimes you can use to your advantage like for example. You can't make a book free on kindle. He can make nine cents but Alex. That's the lowest price you can choose but if you post that same work to apple where you can make a book. Free often. Amazon will like price-match like they'll see that you're selling it on in apple and it's free so then they'll make the Amazon one free and it's just a way to like drive sales and market so maybe a benefit of not having just on one a platform and you just get to reach readers across different platforms to okay but the majority of your is paid. Yes yeah everything is is paid at this point. I've occasionally bumped works to free just for promotion but everything that I have met. This point in kindle apple stores is is paid okay any other platforms that you're syndicating stuff too. I sell on Barnes and Nobles Platform. They were little more profitable for a while. They still allow how public domain works. They do allow you to make your work free. I just don't see them. It's it's been a little while. Since I looked at the numbers I had all the whole breakdown of the yearbook marketplace. Replace actually teach through that a little bit in my my chorus right talk about public domain publishing. But they're just not a huge part of the market. So certainly kindle is the lion unshared I think apple is worthwhile and the paperback is worthwhile but Amazon is where I found most my sales upon publishing at least for you know in my world. It's all about collecting reviews my launch team. And I'm GonNa try and create all this buzz around launch. It sounds like correct me. If I'm all right sounds like this is a little more relaxed process or you like I'm going to create this thing like you don't have an audience of Green Gables fans you'd like you just kind of putting Out there and seeing what happens or is there a concerted launch effort to drive traction in reviews early on. I try to push to the point where I at least have some reviews. I mean I think a lot of people will pause even if it's it looks like a great deal you know if there's no reviews on a work especially when that's been around for one hundred years. It's like wait a minute so when I originally posted my anagram cables collection like when it took off when it hit the number one spot on kindle it had four of us so I don't see it as a total limiting factor. I mean you've got to get something but if there are a few reviews and something looks quality and the reviews are good than I think people if they think it's a good deal and they're interested in it people will check it out and I've seen other examples of that to have other people who have published public up to Maine works being able to drive a lot of sales without a ton of reviews who will now. I'm seeing that twelve years. A slave plus five American slave narratives has over. Six thousand reviews are all of these for you in there on the hardcover. This for four bucks. This is an interesting one. It looks like man. This is flying off the shelves. If it's got that many ratings yes so Amazon tends to you know if you publish your own book. And you've got a kindle final version and you're also selling paperback it combines. Those onto a single item page it kind of does the same thing with public domain. What's interesting is like? Sometimes it's not exactly the same works like I've got my save collection and like you said there's a paperback version or a hardback. But if you go and click over to like that version listen it's probably just twelve years a slave. It's not the whole six works that my collection includes and so just one of quirks about the way Amazon works and kind of combined nine. These works that it. It sees it matches as being the same so at one point..

Q. indigenous person this would be a terrific data do a double day and come out on that I think they call them too spirited in the native American community I something to spirited was like a you know kind of green gables the society yeah well no to speak too speculative to make it yeah a great that's yeah I went into about our down downtown the other night and when I came out of his way to spare that's what's don't of two spirits but at any rate if you want to come out as a conservative if you're a liberal in you want to come out as a conservative you know your dying to you know you're dying to just good just give me a call in the dying embers of the show it Romney who is professes to be very concerned by the revelation that to president trump has been speaking to the president of Ukraine I don't know what I don't what Mitt Romney is coming out as but I'd like I'd like it to go back in the cupboard let's go to John in Toledo John the all right on open line Friday Hey John great have you with us you know this whole thing with the impeachment is a gigantic smoke screen to hide the good news about the economy back in ninety two it was it's the economy stupid right now it's just it's the impeachment stupid we've got we've got the best new home sales data for new construction and sales in two thousand and seven yesterday we had a barn burner of a weekly unemployment claims that got totally ignored we've got a record number of women working total jobs part time jobs full time jobs more than before they're more women in the workforce than men they have the lowest unemployment rate between men and women you know we're gonna turn a surplus in September like in the neighborhood of a hundred and twenty one and forty billion dollars and that'll be ignored because we're still gonna be running a seven hundred billion dollar deficit but the thing is that we're taking home more money yeah the corporate taxes are individual tax that's an oxymoron in government speak budget revenue is up for Medicare Medicaid so security but they still find ways to spend like five hundred and sixty billion dollars on interest on the debt nine nine six and how does it all those numbers occur as a correct John if we lived in normal times that would do it for trump basically basically the economy is going great for most people and the people voted that pocket book that would that would be that's why you that's what Democrats don't even talk about it actually Democrats don't even compete on that tough now if you if you watch Democrat debates they don't actually say anything about the Khan Amin everything that you plan with tank the economy like Elizabeth Warren says stuff about to free health care for illegal immigrants and free welfare for legal immigrants already but they don't they don't even seriously talking about the economy because they know that if I talk about the economy most people will say actually yeah things are going pretty good I certainly don't want to change at this moment on something I want to change to an open borders welfare for illegal immigrants money no object crowd and that's why they don't even talk about that stuff in said they told you crane Ukraine Ukraine Ukraine as as rush said yesterday we might as well make it the fifty eight state of that so that so significant so we're going to have an election based on Ukraine which most people couldn't reliably put that some on and find on a map John it's amazing to me that anytime that there's a good news that comes out for the economy like last month's retail report was up over four percent compared to August of last year contract worth six trillion dollar retail sales here none of this stuff gets reported because all the sudden there is a leak from the Intel committee or some that committee or whatever it is and it certainly put up this huge smokescreen we can't talk about anything on the economy for more than an S. eyelash of an incident well you'll you'll absolutely right John and if we want to talk on that ground these these poll numbers would be dramatically different yeah it impeachment it's as like I said is bad dinner theater it's it's not a real impeachment it's a secret impeachment we don't even know whether actually impeaching the guy behind those closed doors I might just be sitting around playing cards they might just be watching a movie on the whole mock town we don't know it's not a real impeachment thank you vehicle John will close it out in just a minute we're listening to the EIB network.

"And we'll come back to gaming fix on Dubuque. Emt where people make a difference. That was monster mash by the misfits. Just because that was an interesting little cover right there. Yeah I I liked it. I heard it Morning I thought. Wow that's pretty cool. It's kind of fun. You know those knee but So I was thinking about something because I don't know if you heard but The police station five is coming out. Yeah I know this is the thing that they're talking about real talking about it. I think they're calling it the playstation five shock at the moment I don't know but anyway So not that long ago Two Thousand Fifteen two thousand. Maybe two thousand fourteen. I went and bought a brand new playstation for Because my mom in like this she just happened to wants to get me a the best console. She asked me what that was and it was funny because at the time it was between The police station for and the and the xbox one and I think the was out to the we you or something like that. The way you is kind of not really in the running to be honest and I was trying to figure it out and this is like when you had the xbox one when you found out that the xbox one was going to know everything that you did and said and moved in and your heart rate and a bunch of things that kind of scared gamers because we're not exactly the most trusting of lot and So I decided to go get the To the PS four. In at the time like you know a Game Day like first day game addition I spent I think about seven hundred dollars now. That's with two games but still that's that's a decent amount of money obviously And it only came with one controller so I bought a controller abroad a camera. I bought two games and out the door. Seven hundred bucks because like four hundred ninety nine dollars. I think at the time and it is two thousand in nineteen. It's been four years and Now we're talking about the police station five so I was kind of curious in your mind. What kind of bells whistles does the new consul have to have to make it worth changing everything that you're doing like what what makes the console? Good enough you're like okay. I guess I'll toss all my games and get a whole new console and spend the big bucks. Well I would say I want to say what I want to say. Because we're we're alive right so right. We're on radio now podcast. But they're not to be some choice. Some choice option choice features on that. That's all I bet. I gotTa say oh I see I see well okay but like I mean I'm just trying to think of what what it could what those differences would be. Because it's just like to me. I don't like Dana. Carvey was talking about it in a stand up He was talking about like his kid. Wanted him to buy him like an action figure and He's like Oh. Give me that piece of plastic that that little piece of plastic. It's you know it's like well what's the difference it's like well. It's that's my Mega T- mega toe. Has You know his hand? Like this and mega ton has like this in Makati. Has this in every time it turned. Its five more dollars to you and I'm just like I'm kind of curious like what. What are the differences? Here it's such a difference that I need to change. You know what? What am I being offered? Maybe it can handle better graphics Maybe it can handle better system. Or maybe it offered better system requirements to run your games because another GONNA probably up the Games on that will be released for five two but see that just usually what happens. Is they get a better system than the game takes up more space really usually while I mean like they have it's like oh the system's really good so we'll make sure that the game will be really good so like if you don't want it to stall in theory it'd be good if it was like good but you know the game wasn't overclock so it was like you know doing a pretty good pace instead of pushing it. You know what I mean. Yeah I get what you mean like having ear Game Not at thirty seconds. Thirty frames per seconds. So that you know you have dropped frame drop rates. Probably be good right. Hopefully they'll eliminate that with you know the PS five. I don't know like I just I don't know what what would you need? I mean 'cause I know that there's people that they're going to be a PS five's out pump to go. I mean there's people that you know with the iphone you know as soon as it's Iphone X. Iphone X. Two or X. Three years I don't know it's religious. Yes and it's the same thing with console people you know they're like oh the new consuls coming out time to take all my stuff. Put it in a box and send it off to the to the land of your and get an pick up you know. Spend a grand on this other thing. You know. I'm just I'm just trying to figure out. Like what what merits and like even for like more of a discussion. You know this happens all the time in. Games two In you know pen and paper games with RPG's you know where you have like for instance right now we have pathfinder. That's going into two point. Oh look what's what's the point of that specifically what are they giving us. You know what I mean. It's I was GonNa ask you to. When was the last time they had? A Pathfinder come out before two point. Oh did five years five years. Yeah I mean the unless there's something mechanic lease super grossly mechanically wrong with the game. I don't see why you would need to change it. Like second edition world of darkness. I can understand why they had to come up. Come out with a new edition. There were some rules that were little funky in a little game breaking but other than that. I don't see why you actually need to change again. See in theory you could just around it I mean I. It's funny like from a game production standpoint. You know like I'm currently working on sanction and I've worked on other games and I understand like from a perspective of the you. You want to make more money but from a gaming perspective from gamers perspective. I'm just not I don't exactly understand why we have to have new versions all the time and I don't understand why couldn't just be. Here's a bunch of fixes. Maybe it's more of a psychological thing than you know something that's a logical thing because it seems to me that no matter what was soon is something new comes out you. Somebody has to have it just because it's new and I think that that that is a lot of psych was psychological With you wanting something. That isn't yours that you haven't had yet before. Oh It's new it's new. I gotTa have it. I must try this new thing. I know I've met people who are like that and I'm just like I don't understand that I get it but more power to you if you can afford it. You know the only thing that I was thinking about the like where you don't have upgrades all the time it's books. I guess I mean like you do if if it's like a tra- dummies or something like that. It gets new information but if it's not new information if it's fiction you know you don't have like an anti Green Gables two point. Oh generally that's true. They do have continuations. But that's completely different from an upgrade but it just seems like to me like couldn't they just keep playing in the same world like understanding what make money but just you know? Be like okay. Well now we're going to offer this. Other supplement yeah like why wouldn't have series of role playing books where it's like you know you've been playing in this particular realm for this long. Now we're going to take you out of that realm or you're going to be in or Transition into the next round or the next generation and continue on from that chronological storyline. That you were playing now as far as consoles I don't know like in. I mean I could see if like you're sitting.

I want to that again. I've known now. Yeah. Next to awesome. So anyway, we need to get right to business because we've got a very special guest now, and you and Franco way back many years six years. Yeah. No kidding anniversaries next month. F- forgot even how I found you an like you found the ad line. Oh, really? Well. So we were online chatting. In the right direction. Could I might have got a press release or something that Bill sent out? Yeah. And I think we have a mutual friend. Elf elf Alf? I'm losing. It says a little cryptic now lost who is so for those that I mean you to go way back, but for me that is a newbie explain a little bit about who you are what you do. I'm in north house bike, but everybody here knows me as a stranger, and which was the nickname Frank hung on me six years ago. And that's the name of my website now astrologer dot com and with an like an of green Gables, and I've been coming on for six years. I've been doing a strategy for decades. I I learned astrology from my dad. And it's really cool to be able to do this thing that I love to talk about the stars. Actually studied Astra physics in college just one class. But I realized wow, where's the romance of the stars? It was plugged theorem. In math explain to run earlier 'cause I was trying to tell row like, hey, we gotta incoming on ask why you in Tunisia. Look bad. Science man like you could mumbling Graham all you want is based on science. It's science and it's art geometry. There's math, and there's astronomy because the first astronomers were astrologers going back thousands of years. They're the ones who all the courts hired in all these leaders. They wanted to have somebody who could predict like what's happening with these eclipses. You can imagine thousands of years ago. How frightening. It would be they didn't have tons killing to tell us. Okay. All the way back how long ago now never mind. I've been around that long. Okay. So how does it work with a certain sign is it is it when you were born that the universe was in a certain of planets were aligned in a certain position that makes us a certain sign. It makes us a certain personality. So a lot of it depends on where it was the sun when you were born that's your son sign. So for example, we know Frank is an area. So when he was born the son was in the sign of Aries is it, okay? To say your sign cap. Yeah. So Kathy just share with me about other things. She's a cancer too much when you were born the son was in the site of cancer. So you're a summertime baby. You were born right after the summer solstice, we're here in Chicago northern hemisphere. So it's the it's the northern climates Sotho that solstice is the summer solstice for us. So you're born around the longest day of the year. Okay. And your vote by the moon. So your emotional.

"But she didn't fell like feel like she was. And so she would let other athletes basically beat her up on the court, despite the fact that she had phenomenal training and skill. And so she took CV dot on her on the court for the first time and she didn't win the turnament that weekend, but she made it to the semi finals, which was like two levels higher than anything that she had ever done before and not to she took out was to defeat. So when you're talking about this idea of stabbing into an alter ego stepping into a different being different identity. What's important about a wider? We really do it. I mean is it because it allows us to step out of the sort of the the constraints the restrictors of who we feel that we are and allow to step into maybe an identity that that we assume doesn't have those. Stranger has different capabilities. Yeah. It's it's tapping into just the the way that the human mind works. We all take a look at someone else and go their life looks easier over there. No one knows how hard I've got her right now. Right. That's just what we do as human beings. And we all do the grass is greener on the other side thing many times, you know, even to people that when we've heard their incredible story on sixty minutes or any other amazing documentary that have gone through some incredible trial and tribulation, and we'll still go. Oh, she learned all of that mental toughness or internal fortitude from that experience. I wish I had something like that. Because then I would be stronger to like, it's just what human beings do. So all were doing when we're using. And leveraging all three goals, your identity is we're leveraging the grass is greener on the other side effect of while like, we we desire to have those superhero characteristics from that other person or those superpowers and or. Exactly, we're we're leaving that insecure that we have about what we can do on the sidelines, and we're gonna now perform through those characteristics. And and that's a natural thing. Like, this is not about being fake because being fake is really when your not taking all you can do out onto the field and letting it really just show up for you that's being faked because now the world around you is judging you not on truly who in what you can do. And what you really are. And so I mean, if this is a trick that we're gonna use deploy to help you to get out there. And do what you wanna do. Then who cares if you're leveraging one rule in or you're using Batman or using Ziva davita, or you know, and of green Gables, or whatever it might be. Yeah. I mean, when you talk that that way, I I completely get at the same time. I also wonder whether. Not only are not being faked, but this person or whoever it is whether it's made up whether you on the name, whatever it looks like that is a part of you that that is one hundred percent in there. It is always been in there, and it is is sort of a gateway to allow you to step into fuller set of potentials. But it's so trippy it's so different maybe socio ego or something else with it. We just won't let our ourselves step into it. If we feel like it's actually us. Yeah. And and I love to just challenge people with the idea. What does what does you even mean like who are you because you have been shaped by tens of thousands of little subtle moments over your entire life by many other people that you adopted into your unconscious as just who you are.

I've always known that you're a pretty open minded person. But now, it makes even more sense. What do you mean? And what does this have to do with a moment of science? Well, two thousand thirteen study at the university of Toronto show that reading literature is excellent mental conditioning for becoming more open minded interesting. What gives literature this special power? Excellent question. It turns out that reading fictional stories. Prompts a middle response to seek from what happens when we read nonfiction texts like newspapers and essays literature releases us from the pressures of real world decision making and thus enter the mindset of characters are often very different from ourselves makes sense. I know I'm not as imaginative or impulsive as and of green Gables, but it's fun to see the world through her eyes while I'm reading here's amazing during the time you're reading about and thinking like in your also, reducing what psych. Colleges coat your need for cognitive closure. People who need a lot of cognitive closure. Get frustrated or anxious when they face confusing or complex situations. They often jump to conclusions before fully thinking things through good precisely this closed medal state can be damaging to rationality and creativity.

"In one share that experience with people will then my days made Mazen there's nothing better to me. In that. Have you had people come up to you and say, I'm just so touched that you meet this. I'm so happy that this is in the world. I'm sure you've heard that already. Yeah. When when lady who I think is probably close to my age asked me, if she could be me when she grows up on a young girl. She was probably twelve years old. She said this is like walking around in my dream. And I just thought you people are we're all together. Right. This is it these are this is my tribe. This is my this is my collection of humans who specialize in stories and in inspiration and what's possible. And that's what every book is when you open it. You're hoping to be inspired or feel something or be moved to some next feeling. And I just want them to start that journey can get people to read and to put down their phones and open a book my days done yet. It's amazing. When when you think about what comes to mind when I say like, I know you probably have so many, but what are two of your favorite stories your favorite books. Let me see will enter green Gables. Okay, discipline Canadian. But that's of girl who just didn't know where she belonged and got adopted me. That's that's been my go-to story forever. And I think my adult story one of them would have to be memoirs of a geisha. Dutiful? What made you name it? Daisy chain book co. Well, daisies have always been my favorite flower and not because they smell good because they really don't. But because they just inspire happiness. Inspire hope and they always make you feel good. It doesn't matter. What situation? What season you're in a daisy is just welcome. And it is it is joyful. And so if you put a lot of days together than that's a daisy chain like hippies would wear around there. But this is a chain. So it's me Lincoln people in stories in people and stories together at is so beautiful. And so I ask what an incredible answer. Have you gotten any press? Imagine that local news affiliates and people have wanted to take pictures of this talk about this. It seems so news worthy to me. Will it does? And no they haven't I'm anticipating they will in the spring. Yeah. Because we're doing we're doing a book launch like a book truck launch kind of thing in the spring, and we're doing our road trip in the book launch and a road trip. What does that entail? Well, the book truck launch will be how we introduce ourselves to the community at the start of the really warm part of the year. So we're gonna do a big party. And it's going to be a great great time where people really get to see the truck and see what it can do. And then envision it being in their community in which is awesome. And we're going to be road tripping. So my goal is to take books to the small towns late communities outside of my sitting the don't have a lot of us bookstores who don't really have access to a lot of new stories and just make a regular route of going to see all these small places and taking them books. It's not just for big cities. Right. It should be for everybody. It's amazing. I have to introduce you to buy friend. Liz Warner who is going to be on this podcast soon. I interviewed her recently. She works at BuzzFeed, and she works at a place called bring me and Liz, if you're listening, you gotta do a story on this..

"green gables" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"People to talk to I guarantee you. Don't say that. That's okay. Good guy. He's okay. He's not okay. Did is not a good guy. He abandoned us when we were kids marchmont like when I was a kid, and you were like twenty. Twenty. Eight. You think our age differences? Honestly, I've never known, and you're blowing my mind right now four years between us. Yes. Is my memory back, then you're already balding? So that's little Bush in the first episode the news CBC comedy series. Kevin is weird hearing it back end on that. There's a punchline coming. I thought that was kind of. I don't remember something about night custodians. And you hadn't been doing much acting though before Cavendish are you would you were doing more behind the scenes work. Yeah. I kind of stepped away from it. And. I was directing a lot. I went down to Los Angeles for a couple of years and worked at funnier die, and I did a feature. I mean, I love acting. But it's also also hate watching myself. So you're forced to and I'm forced to especially when I'm directing my own stuff. Yeah. So I kind of stepped away from it. And honestly, it was kind of like I'm good with it. That's fine. I don't need to do it. And then this show comes along. Are you finding it easier was honestly, really easy to get back into it and the banter because we've been Mark and I have been doing comedy together for over ten years. So it was really easy and we also kind of play versions of ourselves. So it wasn't that difficult as I have to admit when I watched this when I heard about the show, and I was fans of your work, and I knew was also from the east coast, and I was excited. She's having something people are wearing from the Maritimes candidates, say the east coast. But whatever I've decided to start saying, oh, let it slide. So I thank you. Thank you. I'm from further east. Ocean. The I'm from the actual ocean a bar. On a bar. We know your tail, but I do I was expecting more of a sort of a slice of life show about oh the little foibles that happened within small town. Right. And I think it's not a spoiler to say like halfway through the first episode you even like a quarter of the way to the first episode United. That's not the case. Oh, yeah. There's a beast. We pull the rug out real quick. There's a beast is a coven of witches. There's a cult based around and of green Gables. Yeah. But don't tell me a little bit about bringing that into this story. I don't think we tried to do that. I think we're just physically incapable of leaving anything as it is. I mean, honestly, it started out sort of as that it started out as like a like a Corky town and exploring that, but it was a weird town based on all the things we just described he's sort of idiosyncrasies to this town, which are naturally there. You could absolutely tell that story, but we can't. About three scenes into the first script board. There's a piece and then there was a piece. So I wanna talk about some of the other characters and Cavendish take a listen to this. I'm sorry. Are you accusing us of.
