One of my favorite authors is Martha Gelhorn. Every so often, I pick through Selected Letters of Martha Gelhorn by Caroline Moorehead. I am simultaneously fascinated and intimidated by Gelhorn. She's one of those people with whom I'd love to have a beer (were she alive), but know that I would be tongue-tied and grossly inadequate in her presence. Reading a collection of her personal letters only drives my intrigue deeper.
In a letter to her friend, Martha wrote, "What you live by is what you believe and what you are willing to sacrifice for, what you admire and love."
Going beyond family, what do you live by? What are you willing to sacrifice for?
Wherever you are, whatever you're doing ... Keep it Real.
