flynn's bookshelf

By popular request, we've created this space as a cozy nook to share books, poetry, and other literary odds and ends that Flynn loves and learns from in some meaningful way. It's an evolving project and is in no particular order. Grab a cup of tea and enjoy. Stay tuned for exciting updates here too.

Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.
— Mary Oliver
Stories make us more alive, more human, more courageous, more loving.
— Madeleine L'Engle
Stories matter. Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people, but stories can also repair that broken dignity.
— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
The story — from Rumplestiltskin to War and Peace — is one of the basic tools invented by the human mind for the purpose of understanding. There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories.
— Ursula K. Le Guin
