making it as meaningful


"It came from a moment I witnessed...that stayed with me for years…but I had no idea how... to make the seemingly mundane moment as meaningful as it was in real time to me."

-Adrian Nicole Leblanc, in an interview from The New New Journalism by Robert S. Boynton

I wanted to write you the story of how I found this book — a treasure and signpost for me during a period of vocational transition. But the words are choppy today, so instead I want to share with you my favorite quote from the book. Don’t you think it sums up the task of a nonfiction writer perfectly?

The story will come soon, I promise — hopefully conveyed with as much meaning as it has for me.


  1. Thanks for sharing this quote! I'm looking forward to hearing your story about the book.

  2. is this a picture you took?

  3. Andi -- I took it with my ipod with a special app. It looks cool with little effort! We'll play when I come this summer -- you can show me your camera, I'll show you mine.:)
