This I Believe

I know there are folks out there who listen to NPR much more than I do.  However, one NPR project that I adore is the This I Believe essay where randoms individuals share short thoughts on one single, core belief in their lives.  The diversity is fascinating.  Some seem to hit home.  Others do not.  For some reason though, I can get lost reading or listening for hours.   

Anyone else share the love?

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, check it all out HERE.

I may begin posting/linking to essays that I find particuarly interesting.  I also plan on crafting my own essay in due time, and when I do I’ll be sure to share it.  They are short (strict 500 word limit), but difficult to do honestly.

Anyway, take 5 minutes to read one or two.  It’s worth it.

  1. THIS AMERICAN LIFE!

    Sorry to hijack, but NPRTAL does consumes me once a week.

    I haven’t seen these essays before, but NPR does little wrong in my eyes/ears so I’m looking forward to them – good suggestion.

    I trust they aren’t cheesey though?
